    As we have grown, the need to be able to communicate with patients via text and phone has become crucial for us. Patients can respond in their own time and I'm not sitting around waiting for my phone to ring. We're not playing phone tag.

    A game changer! Patients love the ability to communicate via text message. We are able to reach patients who don't set up their voicemails or return phone calls. We also love that it goes directly to the patients chart once the conversation is closed. Highly recommend!

    Texting has 100% eliminated the headaches our support staff was having. Reaching patients in a timely manner with OhMD has just been ultimately life-changing for our them. Now that they're able to text, they're able to close the loop on a lot of things that normally we would leave open for weeks waiting for a patient to respond.
