Covid-19 In-Office Safety Measures | Covid-19 Testing Information | Find Your Closest Urgent Care

E-Visits have been updated to include screening questions for COVID-19.

Online treatment —
from anywhere.

When symptoms strike, connect with a Northeast Georgia Physicians Group provider through an E-Visit instead of traveling to the urgent care or the doctor’s office. E-Visits are fast, affordable and secure – and they’re available to everyone 18 or older.

Symptoms checked by E-Visits:

  • Flu Symptoms
  • Coronavirus Symptoms
  • Sinus Problems
  • Urinary Problems

Start your E-Visit in two simple steps:

1

Sign-in or Sign-up

E-Visits are conducted through the MyChart website and mobile app. If you have an account, just sign in as usual. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up. If you need help signing up, call 770-219-1963.

Click the E-Visit link

Once you're in MyChart, look for the "E-Visit" link on your screen. We’ll gather payment information and ask a few questions about your health history and current symptoms.

How does it work?

E-Visit FAQs

When will I get my results?

A provider will review your E-Visit questionnaire and reply with your treatment plan and any needed prescriptions within 24 hours.

E-Visits are available seven days a week, 365 days a year. Providers review E-Visit submissions between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. every day. If an E-Visit is completed during off-hours, a response will be sent the next day.

How much does an E-Visit cost?

An E-Visit costs $40. This is payable using your HSA or credit card – both of which are accepted through MyChart. Insurance will not be filed.


Once your E-Visit questionnaire is submitted a provider will review your symptoms. Just like an in-person visit, the provider will provide a diagnosis, prescribe medication for treatment, and then process your payment for the E-Visit.


If your symptoms are severe or indicate a different issue, the provider may request you see your doctor for an in-person visit. In that scenario, you would not be charged for the E-Visit.
