E-Visits

An E-Visit is an online visit with a primary care provider that can be used as an alternative to a traditional office visit for certain non-emergency conditions. This is a fast, affordable, and secure way to receive an online diagnosis and treatment plan for common medical conditions.

E-Visits are available through the MyPinnacleHealth patient portal for any adult who currently has an established relationship with a UPMC Pinnacle physician or advanced practice provider.*

Conditions We Can Treat with E-Visits

  • Sinus, cold and cough – sinus inflammation may hinder the ability for mucus to drain. While antibiotics may not always be necessary for treatment, they are available
  • Urinary Issues – from incontinence to urinary tract infections, our providers can help diagnose and treat a range of common urinary problems.
  • Vaginal Issues – learn more about what’s causing vaginal discharge, itching, burning or odors, and how these can be treated.
  • Back pain – back pain is first treated by a primary care provider. If pain continues, you will be referred to a specialist.
  • Diarrhea – our providers can help you determine if medication is needed. If not, we may recommend diet and lifestyle changes to help.
  • Red eye – pinkeye doesn’t always need to be treated by a physician. However, it can be helpful for a provider to evaluate if red and swollen eyes are a result of pinkeye, a stye, or allergic reaction.

If you need treatment for a condition other than these, you can make an appointment with your primary care provider or visit a UPMC Pinnacle Urgent or Express Care.

*Not all providers will offer E-Visits however, all UPMC Pinnacle primary care patients will have the option to do an E-Visit with another UPMC Pinnacle provider who does.

Cost of E-Visits

E-Visits cost $38. You may pay with a credit or debit card, or with a health savings account.
