Sentara MyChart e-Visit

What is an e-Visit?

An e-Visit is a secure and convenient electronic way to manage a medical problem with your provider.

An e-Visit can be used for specific minor medical problems (Urinary Tract Infection, Pink Eye, and Cough/cold / sinus congestion). It involves using Sentara MyChart to electronically answer a series of questions about your medical condition. Your provider will evaluate your responses along with your medical history to provide you with a treatment plan the same as you would receive through an office visit.

Like a routine office visit, an e-Visit becomes part of your permanent medical record.

Where do you access an e-Visit?

You must have access to Sentara MyChart to do an e-Visit. You can find the e-Visit link in the Sentara MyChart Message Center. 

Who can do an e-Visit?

e-Visits are available at select locations for MyChart participants who have an established relationship with their provider.

What conditions are eligible for an e-Visit?

e-Visits are currently offered for the following medical problems:

  • Bladder infection (UTI)
  • Cough, Cold and Sinus Congestion
  • Pink eye / Eye infection (Conjunctivitis)

What is the cost of an e-Visit?

  • Like an office visit with your physician, an e-Visit is a billable service. The fees will be billed after the service is received.
  • e-Visits may not be covered by your insurance.
  • e-Visit cost is $30.00

What should you expect?

e-Visits are not to be used for emergencies

You can expect a response from an e-Visit the same day or next business day, depending on the time when you submit an e-Visit.

If you have non-emergent needs, you can also:

  • Use the scheduling feature within Sentara MyChart to schedule a physician office appointment

What if I have other questions?

Use the 'Ask Customer Service' feature or the 'Contact Dr. Office' feature via Sentara MyChart for questions.
