PLANT CITY, Fla.—June 10th, 2020 — Today, the leading Florida psychiatric clinics group, Instic Health, announced the introduction of same day appointments. Their outpatient clinics in Tampa, Plant City, New Port Richey, and Inverness are offering scheduling help for those who need appointments quickly. Instic Health is known as a trusted psychiatric practice that provides in-person and tele-psychiatry visits for outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment across Florida. The practice is also now accepting all major insurance plans to accommodate patients and their families. Instic Health offers treatment of OCD, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, Depression and Anxiety, Substance Abuse, Alcohol Abuse, Schizophrenia, PTSD and Eating Disorder.
“There is a great shortage of psychiatrists in Florida. Usually, patients have to wait weeks in order to see a doctor,” said Dr. Pragnesh Patel, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Instic Health. “There is a historic trend in psychiatry that most psychiatrists have not accepted any health insurance, or at least only a very few. We at Instic Heath accept most insurance plans to make the process easier for patients. The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has made it necessary for psychiatry service to accommodate patients and doctors to feel safe with the process of receiving care. We have decided to add tele-health to our in-patient services to save people from in-person face-to-face contact and to not have to deal with sharing space in our waiting rooms.”
With tele-psychiatry, Instic’s patients can see their psychiatrists from the comfort of their own residences. “As of today, we are offering evening appointments as well,” Patel added. “We want patients to know that we are doing everything we can to make their experiences more comfortable with less insurance issues.”
