About Digital Clinic


Welcome, Digital Clinic with Barbara Hoefener, NP opened 4/2020 to provide Addiction Treatment and Adult Medical Care. 

  • Digital Clinic has a small office with very limited staff.

  • There is a long wait list for medical care, we try to see people within 1 month, to do this we limit our total patient count to less than 300. (A typical hospital system office has 15,000 active patients per provider).  I do this so you can ben see more frequently, to learn your name and story, and to keep you medically stable.

  • Technology and medical charts stay up-to-date and electronically secure.

    • You can text message and leave voicemail on the office's HIPAA secure line.

    • Athena Portal= your medical record

      • A summary of your visit, what prescription, lab or imaging that has been ordered electronically the day of your visit without needing to come to office for paper.

      • Print results to labs & imaging for your own file.

      • Pay your bill, update your insurance card photo, and update demographics without talking with the office.

    • Registration & all forms for medical are are easy with the online fillable form, no printing or changing programs needed. *Computer preferred over phone.

    • Self- schedule on the home page- available 24/7 to create an appointment, reschedule or cancel an appointment without talking with the office.  


Digital Clinic is always welcome to suggestions on how to make this a better medical experience for all involved, if you have a suggestion on how to improve your medical experience, please let us know in your visit or fill out this feedback form or let Barb know at your appointment :)
