    Awesome thanks for sharing. Yeah, we should wait a bit before using it. Did it have screen share?

    They’re a bit late to the game lol. I’m happy with doxy and prefer that it’s not associated with a product. I don’t like that use of this platform promotes psychology today as a business, website, magazine etc.

    Interesting, I'm also pretty pleased with doxy.me. Can't wait for your video on Psychology Today (I'm a member) and have received nearly all of my clients from that platform.

    Thanks for making this video! I tried it yesterday too and wasn't even able to get to the BAA agreement. Definitely some bugs with the system. Hopefully they're able to resolve the concerns!

    Tried it with someone I knew–trouble accessing it via Safari and Chrome on Mackbook Pro, 3 different other devices were fine.

    I checked "Psychology Today Sessions" out. I don't plan to utilize it at this time due to the current cons. Also, I track all of my referrals and NOT one of them have ever come from Psychology Today. So, FYI about that.

    I'm aware of Therapy Notes and their platform is far from perfect. So, FYI about that.

    I began using this this wk. w/ my clients, and it's the best platform I've used. My clients are amazed at how easy it is and how clear it is. I use Doxy too, and have had many problems w/ it, particularly freezing. Even Zoom which I use personally is very clear. But Sessions is the most clear and glitch free. It's a wider camera, clients say they can see my office more clearly.
    I'm pretty thrilled w/ this so far! Can't believe it's free for members and HIPPA compliant…

    I was using Doxy.me, and used both the free version and the pay version. I started using the Psychology Today platform a week ago. It was a little awkward at first, but after going through the "learning curve" with this platform I like it better than any of the free platforms I've used so far. The quality of the picture and sound is better than the pay version of Doxy in my opinion and my clients seem to like it better as well. I dropped Doxy at the end of last week.

    i had the same problem on the first day. My client got an email saying he was in and he never showed up in my waiting room; I tried it again with a colleague and the video was very poor and she tried two different devices with no change on my end. Furthermore when I wrote for help, it took a week to get a response and that response was not reassuring. i gave up on it and stayed with doxy and g meetings. It looked tome like the video you got was not great either, though you went very quickly passed it and logged out.
