Do you ever wish you could just call up your health-care provider, tell them your symptoms and have them call you in a prescription? Now you can! For some of those pesky little health issues, you can now see a provider face-to-face— without ever leaving home. Scheduling an eVisit is the quick, easy way to get answers when you are unable to come to the office.
Scheduling an eVisit
If you are a current patient, simply register for or log into the eVisit site by clicking on the green button above to request an eVisit/telehealth appointment and our staff will contact you. It’s that easy!
Follow these simple steps to start taking advantage of our telehealth appointments:
Become a patient at one of our Kelly Goodman Group offices – Kelly Care, Promenade Primary Care, or Kelly Goodman, NP & Associates.
Register with eVisit from a computer. Once you are registered, you may use eVisit on a computer or you can download the eVisit app on your phone or tablet.
Log in to the app or online at your appointment time. You will be asked to provide a credit card and you can choose to either put your co-pay amount on the card, or to pay for the visit in full, $90, on the credit card. Our provider will contact you in the app once you arrive in the virtual waiting room.
Enjoy your face-to-face visit!
The provider will send in any referrals or prescriptions discussed during your visit and will charge your co-pay and bill your insurance for you, just like an office visit.

Frequently asked questions, answered.
The eVisit app lets you connect with your provider through easy-to-use, high-resolution, secure 2-way video conferencing for quick, convenient treatment.
Patients use eVisit to connect with their provider for quick treatment and requests, such as prescription refills, a follow-up appointment, an answer to a health question, or urgent treatment for minor medical issues.
Your provider actually doesn’t need to do a physical exam to diagnose and treat many conditions. That’s because knowing your medical history is considered “90% of the evaluation” when combined with the provider-patient interaction. How you’re feeling can be just as important as the results of a physical exam. Plus, being able to see you and view any picture uploads via eVisit gives the additional visual information needed to make a diagnosis.
It’s easy! If you’re a new user, the first thing you’ll do is create an eVisit account. Then, you’ll answer a few questions about your condition and click the “request eVisit” button at your scheduled appointment time. Your provider
will receive your request, and let you know when they’ll be ready to see you. Once you accept the visit, you’ll be connected to a provider via 2-way video from your computer or smartphone. Your provider will interact with you, answer your questions, and, if needed, send a prescription to your preferred pharmacy.
Yes. If your provider decides you need treatment, she will send your prescription electronically to your pharmacy so it’s ready to pick-up when you arrive.
No, eVisit shouldn’t be used for emergency care. If you have a medical emergency, please dial 911 immediately.
Yes. The eVisit app is 100% HIPAA compliant, so any personal health information you provide is completely safe and secure.
You do need a few basics: a computer or compatible mobile device (tablet or smartphone), a webcam, and a microphone. If your computer or mobile device already has an integrated camera and microphone, you shouldn’t need any extra equipment to get started.
Yes! The eVisit app was designed to be very user-friendly. Imagine Skype, but with a few more bells and whistles to give you and your provider everything you need to have a successful visit.
Click the green eVisit button on our website to get started and sign up. After your account is set up you can use eVisit from any computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Providers can use the eVisit app to treat and manage a wide range of conditions. We are scheduling appointments via eVisit to see established patients for mild acute illnesses and for follow up of other chronic conditions. If you’re not sure if your condition qualifies call our office or ask at your next appointment if a telehealth visit is appropriate for you.
