Guide to Start Using Your Patient Portal

We at Shah Dermatology are excited to give you access to your unique patient portal. The portal allows you to be more invovled in your healthcare giving you access to your dermatological records, notes, and results. As a new patient to the practice you will have the opportunity to fill out paperwork prior to your visit so that your time in the waiting room may be minimized. As an established patient, you will be able to update your medications, allergies, past medical history, as well as view office notes, biopsy results, and even ask questions.

As you leave our office today, you will be given a unique username and password. Follow the instructions below to set up your portal. We realize that this is an extremely confusing process, so feel free to call our office with any questions. You may call us at 301-884-0278. Thanks for allowing us to participate in your healthcare. Here's to your good health!
