A Word About E-mail & Forms

A key decision to be made is if you will use e-mail as a means of communication with your office.  It is one thing to allow patients to request refills, referral renewals and medical records via e-mail or web forms.  It is quite another to handle medical questions using e-mail, most physicians choose not to do this.  With any e-mail or form request, it is important to let the patient know when to expect the completion of the request.
