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.
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.
