why dont drs have email?
wouldnt it be great if we could just email our drs office when we had a question? then they could answer you quickly and we wouldnt feel like we were interrupting them... i have heard of some drs doing this now .. anyone out there have a cool dr like that ?

Mine does. He often responds quicker than my nurse who doesn't have email. The nurses can't have them though she sees whatever I send to him.
He even emailed back to me when I hadn't seen him in months to answer some of my questions.

Most doctors would rather Not tell you anything  "in person" rather than  ignore your email   :)

MY PCP does but I've never used it.  I would have driven my GI insane had he let me have his address I can tell you that much, it was a wise choice on his part.

I should also mention that a receptionist there confided in me that when the email system first went in, some doctors would rather quit than use it.
She said they were so against any kind of change.
My dr. is young and tech savvy.

I do and I love it! My Dr. was the one that told me about signing up for it. I also get my lab results as they come in, even had a PCR arrive in the middle of the night - which was good since i was up worrying about it anyway. :-) Also keeps a running record of all test results for instant comparisons to prior labs.

My Doc had email. I would email his nurse to schedule tests and ask questions. It was very efficient and easy. I guess the important thing is if they email BACK and they did.

If you have HCV in Colorado and are in the Denver area I highly recommend Dr. Gregory Everson.

My Dr gave me her cell phone number so I can call or text if needed. She actually suggested it, not me. Pretty cool, huh?

I also can get me lab results ( from Quest) online.  The Dr gets them, then shoots them off to me.
