In response to COVID-19, Potomac Psychological Center, in an effort to help keep our clients safe, is pleased to announce we are offering telepsych services! This will allow our clients to remain at home and still receive the services they need through a video interaction with their provider. Many of our providers will be utilizing the doxy.me platform to achieve this goal. Please contact our front office at 703-858-7838 x100 or your provider directly if you are interested in participating in this service. You will be instructed to visit the doxy.me website, click on the "Get Started - For Free" tab, then click "I Am a Patient" where you will be able to enter a link provided by our staff to begin your telepsych session with your participating provider. Best of all, most major insurances will provide coverage for this type of service!
