COMMUNICATION WITH DR. SALT
AND IBS & GUT MICROBIOME SOLUTIONS
IS PREFERRED THROUGH THE PATIENTFUSION PORTAL

EMERGENCIES
Please note that our officer does not handle medical emergencies. If you are having a medical emergency, you should call 911 or visit the nearest emergency department.

Portal through PatientFusion
Your portal through PatientFusion is the preferred method for our intercommunication. It is HIPAA secure. You can attach PDF files and send them to us, but we cannot attach PDF files and send them to you. However, Dr. Salt can report results and make recommendations through the portal, when a follow up visit may not be necessary.

***We also ask your consideration of Dr. Salt’s time when you send him messages through your Patient Portal. Please refrain from sending messages requiring more than a 5 minute reply from him. Portal messaging is meant for quick communications. We will ask patients sending portal communications requiring a lengthy reply from Dr. Salt to please schedule an appointment.***

e-Mail
We do not use encryption or other secure methods in our email communication (info@WilliamSaltMD.com) or here on this website with the contact form. In agreeing to be a patient of Dr. Salt and IBS & Gut Microbiome Solutions, you are consenting to the use of a non-HIPAA compliant vehicle. This is our preferred method for communicating with staff regarding appointments and general information.

Telephone
The phone number of IBS & Gut Microbiome Solutions is 614.427.3161. (If you have an emergency, hang up and dial 911 or go to the nearest emergency facility.) You will be leaving a message when you call this number and so we encourage you to use Email or Portal message, in order to avoid telephone tag.
