Connect with family practice doctors through Patient Gateway.

Many of our North Shore primary care doctors use an online portal called Patient Gateway that provides patients with a secure and convenient way to manage their health and their relationship with their North Shore doctor. Through Patient Gateway, patients can:

  • Make routine appointments with family doctors.
  • Order refills of prescriptions.
  • Get referrals.
  • Receive email reminders about future appointments.
