Not sure how secure on-line registration is.
May 14, 2021
Registered on-line. Process was very long and info on medication had duplicates, info on vaccinations and colonoscopy was outdated. Info was sent to office on portal and had been entered into my records at Dr's office. I am computer literate but others my age may find it difficult. A copy of my drivers license and insurance card was requested and later I was informed office might request to copy it. WHY!!!!
May 11, 2021
