What is the patient portal?
A patient portal is a personalized, secure website that enables you to manage health care interactions and communicate with your health care providers at any time. This convenient online connection puts you in control of your health care 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 health care 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?
- Click “Health Record”
- The health record summary page opens on the “Clinical Summaries” tab.
- Click “Request Consolidated Health Record.”
- The “Request Updated Health Records” page opens.
- Do one of the following:
- To get a personal health record for a specific time period, enter the “From” and “To” dates.
- To get a consolidated personal health record, select the “Request complete record” checkbox.
- Click “Request Record” and a message appears indicating that the request is being processed by the practice.
What can I do with my health records?
You can easily review, download or share your health records with other providers.

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

- Create a username and password, then follow onscreen prompts to activate your account.
- 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.
Your patient portal can be accessed through any web-enabled desktop, laptop or mobile device using one of the following supported browsers:

- Chrome (latest 2 versions)

How do I contact my care team through my patient portal?
You can easily message a member of your care team through the “Messages” tab. While in your message inbox, you can send a new message, attach images and view your care team’s replies.
How do I complete any necessary forms?
Log in to your patient portal account and click the “Health Forms” tab to view and complete your forms.
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.
I can’t remember the answer to my security question to reset my password?
If you forgot your username and/or password and don’t know the answer to your security question, please reach out to your practice to reset.
What do I do if I didn’t receive an invitation to create my patient portal?
Please reach out to your practice to resend an invitation to enroll.
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 years old: Call the Patient Portal Support Helpline at 914-242-1555 or contact us.
- Children 12–17 years old: New York State law provides protection of patients who are minors. To request health records of a minor (12-17 years old), parents or guardians need to complete HIPAA Release of Information
- All adults (18+) who would like to share a Patient Portal must complete and sign the Designation of Personal Representative (DPR) 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 12 years old, 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.
