What is NextMD?
NextMD is a patient portal service that eliminates time-consuming phone calls and allows you, the patient, on-line access to your physician's office. All requests or questions will be answered within a reasonable time. No health information is sent via email. When a message is sent from the doctor's office, you receive an email stating you have a new message from Eye Associates of Tallahassee and are directed to log into NextMD to review. With respect to system security, the NextMD technology allows your doctor to use a single server secured by both a firewall and 128-bit encryption to safeguard your privacy. This secured system operates by a password protected log-in that you receive upon registering for the service. Only you will have access to your information. Each family member will receive their own log-in code and password. If the patient is under 18 years of age, the responsible parent will receive the enrollment code and password information.
