General Patient Portal
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up for the Patient Portal?
Your Primary Care or Specialty provider’s office will start the process of enrolling you in the patient portal. A paper copy of the Portal Activation will be given to you at the time of registration or a letter will be mailed to you. If you did not get an activation code or letter, please contact your primary care or specialty office and they can help you get activated.
What is the Patient Portal used for?
You are able to access your preventive care recommendations; your medical history; communicate with your provider regarding your care, appointments or test results; receive educational resources and information, and request prescription refills.
What information can I see in the portal?
The portal displays basic lab results, blood pressure results, allergies, your medication list, patient instructions, your list of medical problems, depart summary, discharge instructions/summaries, patient statements, any upcoming General Physician, PC appointments, and patient education and available resources.
What is an eVisit?
An electronic visit (eVisit) is a secure online consultation with your primary care physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner initiated through the patient portal. It is meant to address common non-urgent health issues that can be diagnosed and treated after hours or on weekends. Only those 18 years of age or older and have been seen by their provider within the last 12 months are eligible for this service.
The cost for an eVisit is $25, payable by credit card, HSA, or FSA at the time the eVisit is scheduled through the portal. Check with your health insurance plan as the cost may be reimbursable.
What test results can I see in the portal?
Lab results are available 24 hours after they are posted to the medical record. Radiology and pathology results are available 72 hours after they post to the medical record.
Why can I not see all the lab results?
Some lab results (e.g., HIV preliminary test, genetic testing) will not display due to their sensitive nature.
Can I enter my own information into my electronic record?
No, the patient portal is currently designed for viewing only.
Can I give my adult child access to my portal?
Yes, an adult patient may designate another individual to have proxy access to their portal account. This can be done in person at Patient Registration.
Can I see my child's medical information?
Yes, parents and legal guardians can be granted proxy access to their minor children's portal accounts upon request. Proxy access can be granted for children up to age 12. No proxy access will be given for patients ages 13-17 years. Prior to the minor's 13th birthday, you will receive a notification email stating that the account will be disabled.
Is my health information protected?

Can I send my provider/clinic a message?

Can I request medication refills?
