Telehealth instructions

Telehealth Instructions for Dr. Steadman

For established patients, Dr. Steadman will occasionally offer telehealth services when needed. To utilize telepsychology, simply call our office at (423)825-4040 and inform staff that you would like to schedule (or change your appointment to) a telepsychology or telehealth appointment. From there, they will provide you instructions on how to use the technology. Note this is only for established patients. New patients will need to be seen in person. 

Also, due to licensure, Dr. Steadman is only able to see patients who are physically present in the state of TN during and throughout the telehealth call.

I use doxy.me software for telepsychology appointments. To access my virtual waiting room, go to https://doxy.me/drsteadmanchattpeds approximately 10-15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. This will give you time to familiarize yourself with the software and set up your microphone and camera. Please do inform us prior to logging in so that I know to expect you (in other words, we must know in advance if you wish to use telepsychology software).

Before beginning telepsychology, you must also read and sign this informed consent document agreeing to use telehealth. Please do take the time to read it, as it does contain important information about the services and how different policies apply, especially with regard to fees, insurance payment, and location requirements. After you sign it, you must email it to us at chattanoogapeds@gmail.com or fax to us at (423)825-4043. You can also email directly to me at jsteadman@hushmail.com.

I am currently only offering this service to established patients and only for therapy. As a rule, I prefer to not perform new patient intakes via telepsychology, except under special, extenuating circumstances.

 

Generally, I do not conduct testing/evaluations via telehealth. There is an option to for telehealth Autism Assessments, and I will talk to you directly about this if it is a good option for you.
