The NextGen Patient Portal (formally known as NextMD) is our secure patient portal. It gives you a way to contact our office about non-urgent requests through a secure web portal.
No. This system uses a secure web portal (website) to send messages to your doctor and doctor’s support staff directly to our electronic health record system. This allows staff to view your request alongside your electronic chart.

Lifeline Medical Associates takes your privacy very seriously. The tokens expire within 30 days as a security measure. If your token has expired, you may request a new token by contacting our office and completing our verification process. Once your identity has been verified, another token will be generated for you.
All lab results must be viewed by your care provider before they can be shown on your account. You will also need to request your health record by going to the My Chart tab and selecting Request Health Record to request your “PHR” to get the most up-to-date records transferred to your account.
Patients should allow at least two business days to receive a response to their message. However, it is common for our physicians and staff to reply more promptly.
To get the most up-to-date records in your account, you must first request your health record by going to the My Chart tab and selecting Request Health Record to request your “PHR.” Please note that there is often a delay before your records become available after you submit your request. A notification will be emailed to you when it’s ready for viewing.
Accounts can become locked after three unsuccessful login attempts but will automatically unlock after 30 minutes.
Contact the office and let them know your email address has changed. They will update your patient portal email address. Once updated, you will start receiving notifications to your new address.
