Frequently asked questions

What is the patient portal?

A patient portal is a personalized, secure website that enables you to manage healthcare interactions and communicate with your healthcare providers at any time. This convenient online connection puts you in control of your healthcare from any web enabled device.

Why activate your patient portal account?

A patient portal offers several benefits. You can bypass your practice’s call center to manage appointments, request prescriptions, or directly communicate to your healthcare team.

You can also view your health records, access visit summaries and other documentation.

What kind of records will I have access to through the patient portal?

You’ll have access to lab and test results, visit summaries, visit attachments, immunization records, medications, appointment history and any other information your care team has made available for you to view.

How do I request my health records?

1. Click “Health Record”
2. The health record summary page opens on the “Clinical Summaries” tab.
3. Click “Request consolidated health record.”
4. The “Request updated health records” page opens.

Who can set up a patient portal account?

If your healthcare provider offers patient portal access, you can set up a patient portal account. Reach out to your practice to get started.

How do I enroll in the patient portal?

  3. Use your username and password to securely stay in touch with doctors and access your health information anytime, anywhere.

How do I access my portal once I have created my account?

Once you have enrolled, you can access the patient portal from your practice’s website. The portal is also accessible from your practice’s email notifications.

Can I share access with a spouse or trusted representative?

You can invite trusted representatives to access your patient portal in your “Profile.” If they do not have a patient portal account, they will be prompted to create one. From there, they can toggle between their own account and any accounts that have been shared with them.

  2. Click “Account” in the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Under Trusted Representatives, click “Invite New.”

What do I do if I forgot my username and/or password?

To reset your username and/or password, click “I forgot my username and/or password” located beneath the portal sign-in button. You will then be prompted to answer your security question and reset your password at that time.

Is my patient portal secure?

Yes. Your patient portal is HIPAA-compliant, which means your information is securely stored and encrypted.

How do I add a dependent to my account on the portal?

Children up to 11 – Call the Patient Portal Support Help Line: (914) 242-1555 or Contact Us.
Children 12-17 – New York State law provides protection of patients who are minors. To request health records of children 12-17, parents or guardians need to complete HIPAA Release of Information form found HERE.
All adults (18+) who would like to share a Patient Portal must complete and sign the Designation of Personal Representative form (DPR) found HERE. The form can be downloaded, printed and emailed to Medical Records at [email protected]

Can two parents/guardians link to the same child’s account?

More than one parent can have access to their child’s information. For example, divorced parents will have their own access to view their child’s portal account.

How do I access my linked dependent’s account on the portal?

Once logged in, you can toggle between your account and dependent’s account using the icon in the very top right-hand corner (circle with a letter inside). The letter shown indicates the first initial of the first name of the account that you are viewing.

Please note, when your dependent reaches the age of 12, your account will automatically become unlinked from theirs, and they are not able to create their own Portal account until they reach age 18, as per New York State regulation.
