Yes. Deaf and hard-of-hearing patients can communicate with a doctor using our secure, HIPAA-compliant live chat feature on our website. Patients can communicate with their doctor in an environment that works much like texting. To activate this feature, select "hearing-impaired" and any other categories that apply to you from the Accommodations menu, and complete the online registration process. The feature is automatically available each time you log in by clicking the icon located at the bottom right-hand side of the screen. At present, live chat is only available on the MDLIVE website and not on the MDLIVE app.
