Patients in active treatment with Dr. Silva who choose to e-mail or text Dr. Silva directly and who include protected (confidential) health information in those messages have been notified and understand that these transmissions are unencrypted, and that, as such, said messages and the information they contain could be intercepted and/or viewed by unauthorized third parties. In sending messages directly to email@example.com and requesting that Dr. Silva likewise respond directly to questions and concerns relating to their care, patients acknowledge that these communications are not entirely secure and, furthermore, explicitly authorize this method of communication. Both existing patients and prospective patients and their authorized family members and caregivers acknowledge that there exist alternate methods of communication with Dr. Silva (including non-written, telephonic means) of which they have been duly notified, and that in sending and receiving direct e-mail messages instead as a matter of preference or convenience, they are effectively waiving their right to more secure methods of communication.
