Who do I contact if I have further questions? You may contact your Provider’s office by phone or stopping by at your clinic.
If some of my health information is not correct, what should I do? This information comes directly from your medical record at your Provider’s office. Discuss any inaccurate information with your provider at your next clinic visit. Your health information is reviewed and updated in your medical record during each visit.
How secure is my medical information? Your information is extremely secure. The information on Patient Portal is merely a snapshot of your medical record, not the actual record.
