We will occasionally send medical information by gmail to you. When we request information from patients (i.e blood pressure charts or photos), that is the ONLY time we want patients to gmail medical information to us. DO NOT gmail health questions as it is just not a secure platform. Consider using NOVARI instead of gmail. In most cases you should call our office to book an appointment.
