All About Our Psychiatrists
When it comes to your mental and emotional health, we want nothing but the best for you. Babylon’s network of psychiatrists is dedicated to providing the best in care, treatment, and prevention for mental illness and disorders.
What Do Psychiatrists Do?
Psychiatrists are medical doctors that focus on mental well-being. They can diagnose mental illnesses and prescribe medication. While providing remote care, Babylon psychiatrists can prescribe a limited selection of medications. They also use therapy and do not always prescribe medication for dealing with mental, behavioral, and emotional issues.
Providing Care for Your Mental Wellbeing
Choosing to see a psychiatrist is an extremely important first step in the road to feeling more mentally or emotionally healthy. When you seek help, you’re seeking the tools to manage your mental illness and live a happier and healthier daily life. Our Babylon psychiatrists provide remote appointments so you can access care, even on difficult days.
What to Expect from a Virtual Appointment with a Psychiatrist
Psychiatrists work with a blend of methods to help people manage their mental, behavioral, and emotional problems. Every patient’s treatment plan will be slightly different from every other patient’s treatment plan. When you schedule an appointment, you can choose your psychiatrist from our list of highly capable and qualified doctors, or you can let us help you choose. At the time of your appointment, your psychiatrist will start a private video call with you, where you can discuss your symptoms and a treatment plan.

Your psychiatrist may prescribe you medication to correct chemical imbalances or manage symptoms. If you receive medication, it will likely be supported by therapy. You may receive individual or group therapy sessions, depending on your needs. Sessions with your psychiatrist will help you develop healthy coping mechanisms and patterns of thought, so you can manage your own symptoms. With support, you can greatly improve your quality of life.
