What is a patient portal?

             A patient portal is a website where you can access your child’s medical records, immunization records, update patient information, request appointments, message the physician and MUCH MORE!

How can I access the patient portal?

  • You will have a link that will take you to the patient portal.
  • You will need to have a log in and password to access the patient portal.

How do I get a log in and password for the patient portal?

  • A valid email address is required and will be your log in.
  • The front desk will give you a temporary password that will allow you to enter at initial log in.
  • You will need to create a new password.

Can multiple users have access, such as mother and father?

·        Yes.  Each parent/patient can be given access to the patient portal if they have a valid separate email address.

Will I have a separate log in for each of my children?

·        No.  They are family accounts.   Each log in will give you access to records for all of your children in our practice.

Did you know there have been 364 cases of measles reported in the United States from January 1 through May 30 this year?
 

       Measles was declared eliminated from the United States in 2000, although it is still commonly found in other countries.  However, in recent years, there has been an increase in the number of cases and outbreaks in the U.S.  International travel and under-immunization can contribute to these cases.

      Symptoms of measles include cough, runny nose, red eyes and high fever.  After 4 days, a raised, red rash appears and may start on the face, spreading downward to the neck, trunk, and extremities.  The rash usually lasts 4-7 days.  Once a person is exposed to measles, symptoms can begin 7 to 21 days later.  A person infected with measles is contagious from 4 days before to 4 days after the rash begins.

     Complications of measles can include ear infection, diarrhea, pneumonia, encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), and death.

     MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine helps protect individuals from contracting these diseases.  It is generally given at 12-15 months and 4-6 years of age.

     

     Protect your children with the MMR vaccine!
