There are two types of Virtual Consults on Snark Health:

1. Introductory Consult: this is the first interaction with a new doctor or a doctor who has not yet accepted you as a patient on Snark Health. An introductory consult is not intended for the doctor to give you care. Introductory consults are for providing you with information or get to know the doctor and to determine if she or he can help you with your health concern (in person and/or through virtual consults). A doctor may need to invite you to her or his office for an in-person appointment in order to accept you as a patient on Snark Health..
2. Standard virtual consults: In these consults, doctors who have accepted you as a patient (whether for "on call" care, unless you already have an ongoing care relationship with the doctor) can provide care. You may receive an examination (within the limits of virtual care), provide a medical history, obtain an assessment from a physician, and receive a treatment plan as determined to be medically appropriate by the consulting doctor.
