E-mail is a convenient and commonly accepted way of communicating in today’s society. However, please note that the internet (including e-mail) is not secure, and anyone with malicious intent can intercept your private medical information. There are ways of using e-mail in secure settings (such as for banks), but that is in the works for the near future. We ask that you do not use e-mail for any substantial or urgent medical issues. E-mail in our office is only checked once daily, with the lowest level of priority.
Please call us directly for all your urgent or important needs, and reserve e-mail more for routine, non-urgent administrative issues.
Faxing over a phone line to another fax machine is also considered secure. Faxing to an e-mail account is not.
