Get Care Now

Convenient and secure online care

What is an E-Visit?

Get the Scripps care you need — when you need it — with an online diagnosis through Scripps E-Visit.

E-Visits give you medical advice about minor problems (like a UTI or cold) without having to go to the doctor’s office. It’s the convenient, easy, secure way to communicate your symptoms and receive a detailed care plan from a Scripps provider, completely online.

E-Visits are free for Qualcomm Premier Plan members and are available to patients with a MyScripps account. It’s just one way to Get Care Now at Scripps.

How it works

Scripps E-Visit starts with an online health questionnaire. You answer some questions about your symptoms and can attach photos. Then, a Scripps provider reviews your information and sends back a written care plan. If necessary, prescriptions are sent electronically to your preferred pharmacy.

Responses to E-Visits are available Monday through Friday from 7 am to 7:30 pm, and on Saturday, Sunday and holidays from 8 am to 4:30 pm.

Access E-Visits through the MyScripps health portal. If you don’t have an account, sign up for MyScripps now.

Once you’ve entered this information, you’ll receive confirmation that it was received by our medical team.

Your treatment plan may include prescriptions or recommendations for follow-up care. Prescriptions can be electronically sent to your pharmacy.
