Our new patient portal, MyChart, is now available! MyChart gives you direct access to portions of you child’s electronic medical record where your child’s health information is stored. MyChart shows you some of the same information your child’s doctor sees. It also provides convenient methods of communication with our office and even an opportunity for you to schedule your own appointments.

What can I do in MyChart?

  • Review medications, immunizations, allergies, and medical history
  • View a summary of current health issues
  • Request or schedule an appointment
  • Review upcoming appointments
  • Request a prescription refill
  • Send a secure message to your physician
  • Pay your bill


Is MyChart Secure?

Information in MyChart is safe from unauthorized access because MyChart is password protected and delivered via an encrypted connection.

How do I sign up for a MyChart account?

Click here and complete the registration. You will need to submit an authorization form to access your child’s records if your child is 12 or older. You will then receive an activation code in the mail to enable you to sign in. Or, ask us to help you sign up the next time you are in our office.
