An electronic or e-visit is a convenient and affordable alternative designed to efficiently respond to routine, non-complex medical problems. Examples might include:
- Alopecia (Hair Loss)
- Suspicious Spots and Moles
- Skin Infections
- Follow-up of a stable chronic condition
- Medical record review and second opinion
Patients receive a full consultation, complete with a diagnosis, personalized treatment plan, and appropriate prescriptions. Patients are able to avoid lengthy waits for appointments and time-consuming trips to the doctor’s office.
An e-Visit is not designed for complex or non-routine medical care especially problems that might require the relating of extensive history information or a thorough physical exam.
E-visits are not billed by our practice to any insurer, as they are usually considered a non-covered service. The patient is always responsible for our typical e-Visit charges. Our standard e-Visit charge ranges from $50 to $250 depending on the complexity of your problem or condition.
Requests for e-Visits must be confirmed and scheduled by our office prior to the e-Visit. Prior to the visit, you may be asked to complete certain medical questionnaires. Sometimes, after reviewing your information, or during the e-Visit, it may be determined that your problem is too complex for an e-Visit session. In that case, our office will schedule you for a traditional office visit and your e-Visit fee will be applied to the patient balance related to your office visit or refunded per our practice’s billing policy.
Communication during an e-Visit may be exchanged via teleconference, landline phone, cellular phone, and online chat. We highly respect patient confidentiality and we follow HIPAA guidelines to keep your data secure and safe.
