A new service for patients enrolled with a family doctor at our clinic.
Please refer to the following guide in order to set up and operate your portal. As new features are added, we will update this page. Please note that the patient portal is a free service to all of our patients.
1. Creating your account
Once you've opened the link for the patient portal, this is what you will see on your screen. If you haven't created an account yet, you need to click the button to register. Before doing so, ensure that you have chosen your desired language in the top-right corner. Note that you can change the language at any point during your registration.
2. Entering your information & viewing terms and conditions
On the registration page, you will be asked to enter your personal information. The sections with a red asterisk (*) are mandatory.

At this moment, the system will send you an e-mail to confirm that your e-mail address is correct and in this e-mail you should click on the link in BLUE in order to activate your account.
