Private & Secure
We use eVisit, a HIPAA compliant tele-medicine provider to ensure your privacy.
Tele-medicine is health-care that is provided from a distance, using modern technology and telecommunications tools. You can use your computer or smartphone to connect with the doctor without physically coming to the office.
eVisit is a HIPAA compliant service which ensures that your personal information is protected and secure. You should use eVisit for fast access for non-critical needs, such as prescription refills, a follow-up appointment, an answer to a health question, or urgent treatment for minor illness like the flu or an infection.
If you’re an existing patient the first thing you’ll do is go to evisit.com and create your account. You’ll answer a few questions about your condition or concern; then, click the “Request eVisit” button.
Our office will receive your request, and let you know when the doctor will be ready to see you. You can schedule an eVisit during typical office hours when you need something, but can’t come to our office.
You will be connected to the doctor via 2-way video from your computer or smartphone. The doctor will ask you questions to diagnose your condition, answer any questions you may have, and, if needed, send a prescription to your preferred pharmacy electronically.
Please follow the following-steps:
Patients new to our practice can also been seen via eVisits for minor medical issues requiring immediate attention. We expect the patient to follow-up with a physical visit to our office.
If you are a new patient, please fill and submit (digital) health insurance and health intake form found in the New Patients Section.
The doctor can treat a wide range minor, non-critical conditions such as a sore-throat, cold & cough, allergies, rashes, pink-eyes, sinus, urinary issues, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn via eVisit.
You can also use eVisit for follow-up consultations, to renew prescriptions, and for general questions about any medical issue you may have.
In some cases the doctor may ask you to physically come to the office, if she feels that a physical exam is desirable.
eVisit should not be used for emergency situations requiring immediate medical attention. If your condition is life-threatening please call 911 to get immediate medical attention.
In some cases, the doctor may ask you to come to the office for a physical exam if they feel it is needed.
The doctor will send your prescription directly to your preferred pharmacy. You do not have to come to the office to pick up the prescription.
eVisits are billed according to your insurance company’s billing standards for tele-medicine. Most commercial plans provide coverage for tele-visits. If we accept your insurance (we accept most), we will bill your insurance company directly, like any other office visit. As usual, you will be responsible for any co-payments due.
