All communications between you and your provider’s office are carried over a secure, encrypted connection. This secure connection utilizes industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to ensure secure data transmission as well as server-side digital certificate authentication. To prohibit unauthorized access, all medical information is stored behind our firewall in our electronic medical record system.

10. I have a PIN instead of a password. How do I sign in to the Patient Portal?
We have made our sign-in process easier. If you have been signing in with a PIN, date of birth, and phone number, you will now be able to sign in with just an email address and password. To do this, you must create a password for your account by clicking the Use your PIN to create a password link on the Patient Portal sign-in page, and following the instructions.
This is a one-time only change; going forward you will simply need to enter your email address and password to sign in.
