Should I tell my family doctor that I’m also receiving care from a doctor by virtual care?

Posted September 9, 2022

Patients have the best outcomes when their care is coordinated, so it’s a good idea to tell your primary doctor if you’re receiving care or advice from any other doctor, regardless of format or location. It’s likely the doctor providing virtual care will ask you the name of your primary doctor to keep them informed about your care. You can also ask for a summary of your care and provide it to your primary doctor yourself. That way, your doctors will better understand your medical needs and coordinate their care for you.
