Patient Portal – Fast, Easy and Secure Communication
The Patient Portal is a website through which you may communicate with our office. Registered patients would have secured and confidential access to the website and may:
- Ask a question
- Receive a clinical summary of your office visit
- Receive results, education material and information online

Why are we using the Patient Portal?
Implementing a patient portal bridges the gap between you and your provider and provides more efficient communication.
