What is a Patient Portal?

A patient portal is a secure online website that allows patients to view their personal health information with convenient, 24-hour access from anywhere with an Internet connection. It utilizes a unique username and password to help keep information secure and meets all compliance requirements outlined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996.

Kresloff & Young Eye Associates Patient Portal

Kresloff & Young Eye Associates went from paper to electronic records on September 1, 2015. One of the exciting things about this transition is that it allows our patients to have an ophthalmology patient portal. Your portal is easy to set up and use by following the instructions below.

It is important that you enter your demographic and medical history information on the portal before your first visit to our new electronic office - even if you have been to the office many times before. The best way to tell if you were here before our electronic transition is if you don’t remember your doctor using a computer in the exam room. After your first electronic visit, only your demographic information should be updated, not your medical history. On all visits, please bring a list of all of your medications, vitamins and supplements, including dose and frequency.

Login Instructions to Access the Portal:

STEP 1: As a new user, click the red “PATIENT PORTAL NEW USER” option located on the upper right corner of the webpage.

STEP 2: Enter your last name and the one-time access code provided to you by our staff when you made your appointment. This access code should have also been emailed to you, but if you are not sure of it, please call 856-854-4242 and we will happily provide you another. Once entered, you will be directed to enter your own unique username and password (your username must contain at least one number), which will make the one-time access code invalid.

STEP 3: Click on the “Demographics” link located at the top of the page to review and edit your contact and insurance information. Please verify that everything has been entered correctly. Click the "Save" button.

STEP 4: Click on the “Forms” link to go to your online medical history. Click on the first link listed to begin entering your history. Once each section is completed, click the "next" button to go to the next section. If you have to stop before completing all sections, click on "Save and Resume Later" to save your changes. Once completed, click "Submit". Once submitted, your medical history will no longer be available for editing and will be in your medical record on the day of your appointment. Remember to keep your username and password available to use as a PATIENT PORTAL EXISTING USER and remember to only update demographic information, not your medical history, as an existing user.

STEP 5: Click "log out" when you are done.

Thank you for using our secure Patient Portal. We look forward to seeing you in the office soon.
