Welcome to our Patient Portal page!
We are beginning the process of using an electronic medical record in our practice as required by federal law. As part of that process, we have established a "Patient Portal" in which patients can enter certain information that will help us, including your medical history. Prior to your next office visit, we ask that you please access our patient portal by clicking on this link to complete our office forms relating to your medical history. If we have not previously provided you with your Username and Password, please contact our office through our "Contact Us" page on this website or by calling the office at 518-690-0177.
When in our Patient Portal, you will not be able to edit the information under the tabs labeled Contact Information, Insurance, or Problem List. We would appreciate it if you do your best to complete the information under the other 6 tabs.
Eventually, we expect that you will be able to use our Patient Portal to obtain your medical records and test results. However, we are not at that point yet. We hope that our electronic medical record will allow for patients to obtain such information by sometime in 2013.
As always, you can contact our office to answer any questions or concerns.

What is hyperhidrosis (hi-purr-hi-DROE-sis)?
This is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating. The word “hyperhidrosis” means too much (hyper) sweating (hidrosis).
This excessive sweating can interfere with everyday activities. Hands can be so sweaty that it becomes difficult to turn a doorknob or use a computer. Sweat from the underarms often soaks through clothes, causing obvious sweat marks. Because the skin is often wet, skin infections can develop.
You can learn about other signs and symptoms, treatment, and more by visiting the pages below.
