Specialized Virtual Therapy & Telehealth
Virtual therapy allows physicians to administer services by video conferencing with patients remotely. Now, patients can access Southwestern services in their home or workplace when it's convenient for them. Telehealth also allows for further consultation with teachers, family members, and other providers involved in a patient’s treatment/care.
At Southwestern, we understand that it's not always possible to make time for appointments in your daily life. Or have other needs, such as physical or psychological limitations that prevent a patient from leaving the house, as well as the hassle of traveling to meet for therapy in the office. We believe therapy services should be easy and accessible to everyone, that's why Southwestern provides virtual therapy or telehealth services online.
