Inova E-Visits

A new, non-video way to communicate, consult, and get care from your doctor via MyChart

A new way to get care online

Inova Primary Care is now offering a fast and easy way to communicate with your provider online. E-Visits are a secure way to connect with your provider, for certain non-emergency conditions, to discuss your health issues and receive an online diagnosis and treatment plan in the same or next business day.

Currently E-visits are only available to established patients with Inova Primary Care at select locations.

Available - E-Visit Questionnaire:

  • Cough
  • Upper Respiratory Infections
  • Birth Control
  • Pink Eye
  • Urinary Problems (Dysuria)

How It Works:

You may access E-Visits through your MyChart account. You will be asked a series of pre-set questions in order to provide specific information about your condition. Your answers will then be reviewed by a provider. An E-Visit is not a video visit; therefore there is no virtual visual connection with the patient and provider.

For E-Visits received before 2 p.m., you can expect a response before close of business. For E-Visits received after 2 p.m., you can expect a response by the next business day.

E-Visits should only be used for non-urgent and non-emergent conditions.
