Mental Health Virtual Receptionist Services Allow You to Do More
People talk to psychologists for a variety of reasons. Some of them talk with psychologists because they're feeling lonely and struggle with depression or social anxiety. Others have a condition severely impacting their physical health and need help to cope properly. As a clinical psychologist, you're busy enough with all your responsibilities for these people.
You can't grow an extra pair of hands or another head to keep up with all the missed calls at your practice. Neither is it always feasible to hire a whole in-house live call answering team. We think it's a much better deal to let a professional virtual receptionist company provide the kindest, friendliest service to current and potential patients. At OmniCall, we have everything you need to do more to grow your psychological practice. Find out why using a virtual medical answering service like ours will make your professional life much smoother.
Types of Conditions Psychologists Treat
Clinical psychologists focus their efforts on treating patients with mental health problems. They don't prescribe medications like psychiatrists do. Instead, they closely listen to each patient and the specific issue they're overcoming. They also use the most updated version of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual), published by the American Psychological Association (APA), to diagnose patients and create effective treatment plans. There are many types of mental conditions psychologists help patients with. Here are some of the most common:
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
The Most Important Psychologist Characteristics
