Patient Portal

What is NextMD?

NextMD is a patient portal service that eliminates time-consuming phone calls and allows you, the patient, online access to your physician’s office. All requests or questions will be answered within 24 business hours. With respect to system security, unlike emails that use multiple servers over the internet, the NextMD technology allows your doctor to use a single server secured by both a firewall and 128-bit encryption to safeguard your privacy.
