Their definition of online - once the credit card has been charged it links to a PDF which must be signed and faxed.
It is worth asking whether the signed PDF can be scanned and emailed.

Adobe reader offers the option of adding a signature (and text for date), then if you print to a PDF printer, you can email or fax the result. I often find places that accept the email (such as the accounting firm who verifies an investment holding). Otherwise Faxzero does it for free.

I have also Fax a letter to my doctor asking for specific actions (usually a followup) and works better than leaving a message.

I will have to make estimated tax payments to the state this year, and I was completely gobsmacked by the procedure.

They don't allow online estimated payments.

They also don't allow you to download and print the necessary forms. It seems they think their scanner can only deal with voucher forms printed by their own printer, so I had to make a phone call and ask them to mail me some voucher forms.

Now I must fill out their forms and snail mail them in so they can scan them and process my payments.

I miss the delightful aroma of mimeograph ink!

The Dr.'s office said No. I ended up mailing the forms with 2 stamps (they weighed over an ounce).

Interestingly, my tax CPA does accept a signed PDF as e-file authorization.

Precisely, and those who refuse to move forward do so at their own peril. While I have a number of reasons why I've switching GPs, without the office's reticence to adopt the safe, modern and convenient technology we're talking about, I probably would have muddled through with the other concerns. It is surely not important, by itself, to drive me to another doctor, but it is enough to be the straw that breaks the camel's back.
