How to send a HIPAA Secure Message to a Colleague in the Doximity Network

You can now send a HIPAA-secure message to another Doximity member through our messaging feature.

Please note, in order to use our DoxMail feature, you must be a verified member and mutually connected to the verified recipient. If you do not have the option to send DoxMail, this means that either you or the recipient is not verified, or you are not mutually connected as colleagues on Doximity.
