A patient portal is a way to communicate with your health-care provider via the Internet. Our patient portal is called NextMD. It is secure and easy to use.
You can use NextMD to:
Request a medication refill.
Request information from your health record.
See upcoming appointments.
It should not be used to reach the Center if you need an immediate response. Call the Center at 517-748-5500 if your question or request is urgent.
To ensure patient privacy, we cannot communicate with patients about medical issues using traditional email. NextMD allows us to message all patients in a confidential, private arena.
How do I request access to NextMD?
Request a token number the next time you are at the Center or call us to enroll anytime.
You can use NextMD by going to www.nextmd.com and using your log-on information.
Can I enroll if I have more than one doctor?
Yes, you can enroll in multiple practices. Each provider must grant you access separately. If you wish to add a provider, contact the office directly.
How can I use NextMD for my children?
Due to confidentiality laws in Michigan, we will not issue a patient portal to parents for children age 12 and older.
Can I have someone help me with NextMD?
You can designate a Care Manager, a person whom you say can have access to and/or manage your portal account. A Care Manager Consent form will be required to fulfill this designation. Please contact our office for more details.
