Telepsychiatry Services for UTHSC Residents

University Health Services is pleased to announce that Dr. Iverson Bell, Psychiatrist, is now available for Telepsychiatry services for UTHSC residents. Telepsychiatry is the use of video conferencing, telecommunication and information technologies to provide behavioral health care. We use a system that is secure, confidential, and private. It’s easy to connect and use for both the provider and the resident.

Reasons to access Telepsychiatry Services:

  • You are out of town and need to access behavioral health services.
  • Your busy schedule prohibits you from accessing regular appointment times.
  • You have an acute concern that you want to discuss and it’s after hours.

It’s imperative that you establish yourself as a patient with Dr. Bell with an in-clinic initial visit. Dr. Bell will not be prescribing through a Telepsychiatry session, but upon review of your records (usually within 24 hours), he may be able to call in or mail prescriptions.

To schedule a Telepsychiatry appointment, you can call Christa at 901-448-5064 or call Dr. Bell directly at 404-934-9465.

Dr. Bell, and other behavioral health providers (including counselors), are available at University Health Services. Call or check out our website for more information.
