  • Accession is a secure Internet-based portal through which patients can become more active participants in their health care.

    Accession Patient allows patients to make appointments online and if enabled by your doctor access your Laboratory and Medical Imaging reports.

    To use the Accession Patient Portal, you must accept the Terms and Conditions which will be displayed for you at your first logn.  If you would like to review the Terms and Conditions, please see the link below.

    How do you gain access to Accession? If you are are a clinic patient and would be interested in trying the Accession Patient Portal, please discuss this with your doctor or our office staff when you are next in!  You will be emailed a unique Username and a Temporary Password. When you first log in, you will be required to change your password.  Passwords currently are set to expire after 180 days which is quite standard for computer security.  You will need to change your password after 180 days has elapsed when you log in to maintain your access. To log in, please click on the Accession logo above, or the link below.  We would suggest keeping this link as a "short cut" in your browser.

  • Password security has been set quite high: 8 or more characters, a mix of upper and lower case alphabetic characters and must contain at least one numeric character and one special character (e.g. %,*,!,?).  An example strong password would be "Winter.1"

  • IMPORTANT HINT:  We would strongly recommend that you use your computer's Mouse to Select theTemporary Password in the registration email, and then Right Click, or use Ctrl C to copy it to the "Windows Clipboard" and finally Left Click on the Login Password Field and "PASTE" (Right click and select paste or using the keyboard, Ctrl V) the password in. The Temporary Password is basically too long and difficult to reliably type in manually.
