A Success Story with eVisit
Dr. Rebecca Cirino, D.O.
Dr. Rebecca Cirino, D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine), is also certified by the American Board of Psychology and Neurology. She has more than 10 years of experience practicing general adult psychiatry in northeastern Ohio in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practice, and emergency departments. But after having five children, she decided she wanted to spend more time with her kids and open a completely online virtual clinic from her home.
Dr. Cirino offers affordable, easy, online psychiatric care. The challenge for Dr. Cirino: she has five children, a factor contributing to an extremely hectic lifestyle. Each child participates in different sports and other activities, leaving Dr. Cirino with an unimaginable juggling act between being a psychiatrist and a mother.
Wanting to work from home to defuse her life’s complexity, Dr. Cirino started exploring telemedicine options, and found eVisit. “I chose eVisit due to its ease of use for my patients and myself,” says Dr. Cirino.
Today, Dr. Cirino treats more than 270 patients, exclusively online through eVisit. First, patients register or log in. After asking a few simple questions, including a brief medical history and current symptoms, patients can book a time to consult with Dr. Cirino by videoconference. Patients start a session—and make sure to get all their questions answered. There’s no time limit to an online videoconference visit.
Dr. Cirino has completed more than 550 visits, with an average length of 10 minutes, and has earned nearly $48,000 in less than a year with eVisit. Patients save money—an average visit costs less than $90, but more than the money, the most important factor for Cirino is the comfort and security of her patients. “They know that the visits are completely secure and personalized to their needs,” she says. “Plus, they do not have to take time off work or leave their house, so it’s very convenient for them.”
For Dr. Cirino, raising five children has become a whole lot easier, because she doesn’t have to travel back and forth to an office and she can balance raising her kids, while providing superb patient care at the same time.
