PORTAL Update!

Our Athena Portal just had a new release and some functionality has changed, for the most part, to improve efficiency. PLEASE NOTE: YOU CAN “check in” online, BEFORE your appointment. PLEASE do help us by using this function – it allows us to confirm any changes you may have had, It gives you a place to document briefly what you are coming in for, you can even pay your copay on line, AND there is a link to complete and update your HEALTH HISTORY QUESTIONNAIRE.
FOR ALL NEW PATIENTS and all ANNUAL EXAMs/PHYSICALs of returning partners, Please DO update this if you will BEFORE the appointment date. **You do not have to worry about specific dates of surgeries/ procedures/ immunizations etc. We will fill in those for accuracy at your appointment.
I do find the social history update is the one that changes most often and ask that you fill this section in , as well as for women the Gynecological history. PLEASE phone our office if you are having problems with this process so we can walk you thru it, again to give you more time in the visit with Dr. Alvarez, and less at the front desk on our tablet.
**PLEASE NOTE – for the Health history questionnaire, this is not a function you can do on your cell – Please use a tablet or desktop or laptop.

THANK YOU partners for continued active participation ! The portal ( your open medical record and mode of non urgent communication with Dr. Alvarez) is a crucial part of how to keep the practice efficient.
