Once intake is completed you will be notified if we can continue with follow up care or to find a different provider if we don't have all the resources to better address your needs. So if you already have a psychiatrist now, don't cancel your appointment with them until you are accepted in our clinic.
At Mid-Florida Psychiatry Center, a TelePsychiatry virtual clinic, Dr Vangala has Physician Associates and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners (AHP’s)who work along with Dr Vangala in seeing patients for medication management, either during initial visit or follow up visits. If an AHP has done assessment and unable to review with MD or the team are unable to come to conclusion of diagnosis and treatment plan, you may asked to schedule a follow up appointment prior to prescribing medication. We do not provide any emergency tele psych visits. Please visit your nearest emergency room or call 911 or 988 in case of emergency.
Also, Dr Vangala is teaching Medical students, PA students and Nurse practitioner students in this clinic. You may come across these students, who are just gathering the information and learning from either Dr Vangala or his AHPs. Please notify the staff if any specific requests-like no Students.
Our providers are ONLY licensed in FL, hence patient need to be in Fl at the time of appointment, and meds will be sent to pharmacies in FL only.
At the end of Public health Emergency (Nov 11, 2023), controlled medication such as Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, Temazepam, Ambien, Lunesta etc., can be prescribed via tele visits, if the patient meets certain criteria. These criteria are in the process of being finalized by DEA.
