Personalized Care for Every Individual
We believe that Telemedicine is the future of Medical Practice, especially for Psychiatry, because it’s allowing healthcare providers to care for their patients anywhere, including rural and underserved areas. Psychiatrists began utilizing technological advances in medicine by implementing telepsychiatry sessions even before the pandemic occurred. We are one of the few medical specialties that can take advantage of telemedicine without significant compromise to the quality of care.
In light of COVID 19 events with implemented closures and quarantine, we have been offering a telepsychiatry appointment since March 19, 2020. Since June 1, 2020, our office in Huntingtown, Maryland, was re-opened on Wednesday for in-office visits and Initial Evaluations.
Telepsychiatry Appointments are available Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
In-Office Appointments are available Wednesdays only.
The phone consultations as follow-up appointments are mostly reserved for older people, for someone who has difficulties navigating computer/mobile devices or has no equipment (computer or smartphone) to arrange a telepsychiatry session. The reason phone consultation can not be utilized regularly is that the phone line is not compliant with HIPAA and HITECH requirements, and we can not guarantee confidentiality during the phone conversation.
We will continue to offer telepsychiatry appointments indefinitely.
For Telehealth appointments, we require you to use your camera.
Please make sure that your camera and microphone are working properly prior to your appointment.
Please do not drive or operate any machinery during the telehealth appointments for your safety and out of respect for the doctor.
In our office, we are offering secure telemedicine powered by Doxy.me
Doxy.me utilizes state-of-the-art security and encryption protocols, making this platform compliant with HIPAA and HITECH requirements.
If you scheduled for a telepsychiatry session with Dr. Venera Miller, please log in to https://doxy.me/cipmllc at the time of your appointment and sign your name.
If you prefer, we can email you the Invitation to join Dr. Miller for the secure video session. Please confirm your email with the office manager prior to your telepsychiatry appointment time.
The opioid dependence patients are required to have in-office mandatory urine/oral toxicology screen prior to their telepsychiatry session.
In case the connection on Doxy.me would not be adequate, please use the following link to a ZOOM Meeting

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, some state Governors have issued emergency orders to increase access to telehealth services and to increase the pool of available health care providers.
Please see out of state requirements for some neighboring states in regards to the telemedicine.
Telemedicine Services for Virginia Residents during COVID-19 Emergency
During the COVID-19 emergency, and in the interest of continuity of care, professionals licensed in other states and the District of Columbia are authorized to provide telemedicine services to Virginia residents with whom they have an established practitioner-patient relationship. Establishing a new relationship with a Virginia resident requires a license from the Virginia Board of Medicine (https://www.dhp.virginia.gov/medicine/)
Out of state health care providers, including physicians, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, physician assistants, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, practical nurses, professional nurses, advanced practice registered nurses, and nursing assistants with an active license or certification in good standing in any United States jurisdiction are hereby authorized to provide healthcare services in Delaware
A temporary emergency license is not required to practice Telemedicine. Please refer to the notices posted on our website at www.dos.pa.gov/med. A temporary emergency license is only required to those licensees wishing to physically practice in the state. Governor Wolf also granted the department's request for a suspension to allow licensed practitioners in other states to provide services to Pennsylvanians via the use of telemedicine, without obtaining a Pennsylvania license, for the duration of the emergency. Out-of-state practitioners must:
be licensed and in good standing in their home state, territory, or country. Provide the Pennsylvania board from whom they would normally seek licensure with the following information prior to practicing telemedicine with Pennsylvanians: their full name, home or work mailing address, telephone number and email address; and
their license type, license number or other identifying information that is unique to that practitioner's license, and the state or other governmental body that issued the license.
