No. MyChart is a free service offered to our patients.
You need access to a computer connected to the Internet and an up-to-date browser (such as Internet Explorer).
Patients who wish to participate will be issued a MyChart activation code during their clinic visit. This code will enable you to login and create your own user ID and password.
No, your activation code is not your MyChart ID or password. You will use the activation code only once to log into MyChart for the first time. (The activation code will expire after you have used it or after 60 days). When you log into MyChart the first time, you will then be asked to create your own unique MyChart ID and password.
For your security, your activation code expires after 60 days and is no longer valid after the first time you use it. If you are having problems, please contact your Doctor's Office for further assistance.
Contact your Doctor's Office, and after your information is verified, a new code will be sent to you via the U.S. Postal Service. Privacy issues prevent us from e-mailing a new activation code to you.
You may contact your Doctor's Office to request a new, secure password. You may also click the "Forgot password" link on the sign-in page to reset your password online.
Your doctor’s office determines which test results may be accessed through MyChart. Certain test results (for example, test results of a very sensitive nature or that require consultation with your doctor’s office) are not available through MyChart.
Generally, test results that are released by a doctor's office to MyChart are posted 1-12 days after your doctor has reviewed the test results. The precise timing depends on events largely beyond our control.
Contact your doctor’s office and inform them that the information is not correct.
Our goal is to send a reply within 1-3 business days. Please note that MyChart should not be used for urgent situations. If the situation is urgent or requires immediate attention, please call your doctor’s office, go to the emergency room, or dial 911.
Sometimes, depending on the family member’s age, competency, and other factors. This is called proxy access. To seek proxy access for a family member, you must fill out a Proxy Consent Form and take it to the doctor’s office of the patient for whom you are seeking proxy access. Proxy access allows a parent (or guardian) to log into their personal MyChart account, and then connect to information regarding their family member.

No, due to the sensitive nature of medical information, each adult must sign and submit a Release of Information request and establish their own MyChart account.
Log into MyChart and from the left menu, go to the Preferences section and select the appropriate option.
Access to information is controlled through secure activation codes, personal ID's, and passwords. Each person controls their password, and the account cannot be accessed without that password. Further, MyChart uses 128-bit SSL encryption technology with no caching to automatically encrypt your session with MyChart. Unlike conventional e-mail, all MyChart messaging is done while you are logged on to our Website.
While logged into MyChart, if your keyboard remains idle for 15 minutes or more, you will be automatically logged out of MyChart as a security precaution. We recommend that you log out of your MyChart session if you need to leave your computer for even a short period of time.
Please call your doctors office with any questions.
