TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY

A Doctor-Patient Partnership

At Psychiatry Group Hawaii Ltd., we view the doctor-patient relationship as a therapeutic partnership based on mutual trust, respect, understanding and communication. Patients take an active role in their treatment, where doctor and patient work together to develop a treatment plan that both meets patient's needs and goals, and is also consistent with the doctor's  treatment philosophy and standard of care.


Through developing better self-awareness and self-acceptance, and in utilizing healthier coping skills, our hope is that patients who engage in therapy (with or without the support of medications) are empowered to live their lives freely and to the fullest -- to become their own best advocates for their health and in their lives as a whole.

TELE-PSYCHIATRY: THE NEW NORMAL

Dr. Uyekubo has moved her clinic online and continues to provide high quality services in both medication management and psychotherapy. 


Our video chat platform is easy to use, is secure (HIPAA-compliant), and is covered by insurance. 


There are many advantages to tele-health over a traditional in-office setting. In particular, this new technology has allowed for a higher continuity of care due to increased ease of access, convenience, and time efficiency where you can have an appointment in the privacy of your own office, care or home without having to take time off in order to commute to an office setting.

Video Chat: How it Works

  • At the beginning of your scheduled appointment time, we will send you a text and/or email link.


  • Click on the link and follow the directions/prompts, and the video chat session will be up and running.


  • You will NOT need to create account or download a special app. 

  • These sessions are not recorded and the link will expire after the session is over, thus protecting your privacy.

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on video chat soon!
