Schedule an e-visit with Dr. Jason Papenfuss
- Are you an established patient of Dr. Papenfuss?
- Are you a resident of the State of Nebraska and currently residing in-state?
If the answer to both of these questions is yes, you can initiate an appointment to see Dr. Papenfuss in a virtual patient visit known as an E-VISIT. You initiate the visit from your phone or tablet on your own time – whenever it’s convenient. There will be a few steps to sign on and a few prompts to enter information about your condition and provide clear, well lit photos for Dr. Papenfuss.
Once you have completed this step, simply keep your phone handy and watch for him to respond BY ALLOWING NOTIFICATIONS IN THE APP. You will receive a notification from him with questions about your condition and a recommendation for treatment. We will send needed prescriptions to your pharmacy and order labs if necessary.
Dr. Papenfuss is out of the office and telehealth has been temporarily turned off. He will return to telehealth on January 26, 2021.
