In order to best serve your medical needs, we utilize a state of the art electronic medical records system, Practice Partner, by Physician Microsystems. Our goal is to have a paperless office! No more waiting while we search for your chart. Prescriptions can be renewed with the click of a button. A summary of your medical history can be transmitted to consultants by email, and just as easily be printed for your own personal records.
After a couple of months of testing, we are proud to be one of only a handful of offices in the country to offer a link to our patient's own personal chart over the Internet! For security, you will be assigned a password to access your chart the moment you become a patient at our practice. You'll be able to register prior to your first visit, check or even graph your past vital signs, print a list of your medications or medical problems, and even look up your most recent lab results. Imagine being in an emergency room and being able to access an old EKG for the ER physician to make comparisons. This could really be a life-saver! Click here to see more details.
Internet Visits* (coming soon)
Using secure, proven technology, we hope in the future to offer Internet visits as an option for our patients. This means that at the physician's and patient's discretion, simple visits that don't require face to face contact may be handled at the patient's convenience from home. As of today, most insurance companies in our state are not paying for this service, but this is changing around the country (albeit slowly). Until reimbursement changes, we will have a reasonable fee schedule for this service depending on the complexity of the problem. *This service is not available yet.
