Reviewing Your Patient Information
You can review and, in some instances, update your patient information through the portal. To review your current information in the patient portal, click on the “My Health” tab in the top bar. Then, below the purple bar and on the left side of your screen, you will see the various categories featured here, including Insurance and Pharmacy, Medications, Past Medical History, etc.
Listed here are important areas to know and instructions for actions you can take in this area:
Patients can view their Insurance information but cannot make any changes. They can however, add or change their preferred pharmacy. There are two ways to do this:
To search for a pharmacy, click Add Surescripts Pharmacy, enter as much criteria as possible and click Search. Click the blue link to add the pharmacy.
To enter and save information for a pharmacy you already know, click Add Manual Pharmacy and input pharmacy details. Click the blue save button to add the pharmacy.
To remove a pharmacy from your list, click the blue Remove link to the right.
Patients can add medications and delete some medications they are currently taking.
To add a medication, begin typing the medication in the Drug Name field. Select the medication when it populates below. Then, to the right, choose the appropriate dose or click to add the prescription with an unspecified dispensable.
You can delete medications that you have entered in the Patient Portal, but you cannot delete medications prescribed by Peraza Dermatology Group and entered by your provider. To delete a medication, scroll down to the list of Patient Medications and select Delete to the right of the medication you’d like to remove from your list.
Patients can add or delete their current allergies.
To add an allergy, begin typing the allergy in the Allergy field. Select the appropriate allergy when it populates below.
If there are no allergies, select Mark No Known Allergies.
To delete an allergy, scroll down to the list of Patient Allergies and select Delete to the right of the allergy you’d like to remove from your list.
