Seasonal Allergies, comment


I do think having having thing available electronically is very helpful, but at the same time I do not.The doctor may read what you have written him in an email but may not completely understand it. It is good to have oral communication available if need. If he were to have a question, he could call you but having a person right there in front of you is much easier I believe. Everything is becoming electronic now and days, so I better start getting used to it.

    I honestly have never thought about e-mailing my doctor. I really didn’t even that was possible. I think its nice when my doctor calls me on his own time to see how things are going for me after a visit. He tends to call me from his personal cell as the number is always blocked and its after business hours. I think e-mailing is very helpful in some cases but not so much all the time – it really depends on how fast you want a response.

    I guess I never looked at it that way. Thank you for pointing that perspective out. I think it would take longer for a doctor to respond to an email than a visit. Technology can be a good thing, but I also think that technology is starting to take over the world of communication. If people did not have communication then I believe that nothing would go correctly. Having technology is a very helpful thing in someways, probably more than others.

    I also agree that e-mail is not the most appropriate place to have a serious conversation with your physician. I also believe that e-mail does have a place in the physicians office. When a patient needs non-urgent information, such as the name of a reference mentioned at an appointment, a possible prescription for lab work before a visit done weeks in advance, or a list of immunization needed to travel to a country, this type of communication can be beneficial. The physician can respond, without distractions.

    I do not think this would be a helpful idea. I have tried emailing a Doctor in the past and it took longer to get a response then it would have taken to get an appointment. I think that doctors already have enough on their plate that it would be much easier to go in and see them during office hours then sending an email and it taking a week for a response. I also believe that there is too much room for error with just sending an email. Its easier to explain things in person and with a email things may get communicated wrong.
