East Jefferson General Hospital Announces E-Doc, First of its Kind Accessibility Program in Louisiana
Date:2/26/2016

East Jefferson General Hospital officially unveiled its newest convenience-based program, E-Doc, on Friday morning, becoming the first hospital institution in the state of Louisiana to offer the advantageous service to patients.

Powered by Teladoc, E-Doc allows patients to visit with a primary care doctor 24 hours a day, 365 days a year from the convenience of a smartphone or computer for just $49. Doctors are then able to provide fast and affordable care plans and prescriptions for most minor medical conditions following the initial patient consult.

“This is just another way that we can seamlessly bring the top-tier care we offer at East Jefferson General Hospital to our patients,” said Dr. Mark Peters, EJGH President and CEO. “The convenience factor offered by E-Doc is unlike anything we’ve seen in the medical field before and we are so excited to be the first in the state to offer this program.”

E-Doc offers board certified doctors who specialize in a variety of practices including family medicine, internal medicine, emergency medicine and pediatrics, accessible from wherever a patient may be.

To access E-Doc, visit EJGH.org to set up an account. Once logged on, E-Doc is available around the clock from any smartphone, tablet or computer.
