Instructions for Telemedicine Appointment using Curogram

Thank you for using telemedicine at Athens Behavioral Medicine. We are using this new technology in an effort to keep our patients safe and at the urging of both our federal and state governments during the Covid-19 outbreak.  Please bear with us as we navigate using this platform which is new to our practice.  We hope that you will forgive us for any inconveniences or any technology difficulties that you may experience.  If you are uncomfortable using telemedicine, we are still seeing patients in person at our office location.  We do hope you will find this telemedicine experience to be a convenient, safe way to conduct your appointment with Athens Behavioral Medicine.


Telemedicine using Curogram is HIPAA compliant, completely safe and private, and covered by most insurance plans in which we are in-network.
