How do I email my doctor?

Question:

How do I email my doctor?

Answer:

You may email your doctor via myUABMedicine, a free online patient portal for UAB Medicine patients. It offers personalized and secure access to portions of your electronic medical record. The portal also allows you to manage your health and stay connected with your UAB health care providers. You can access this tool from anywhere you have access to the Internet. You can use it to communicate with your health care providers, request renewals for current prescription medications, view selected lab or other test results, view your clinical visit summary, and active medication and allergy list, and more. Sign up for the patient portal when you receive an invitation by email. You can sign up for the invitation when you see your doctor or enter the hospital, or by clicking myUABMedicine

Registration Step-by-Step

Once your health care provider confirms your email address and initiates the sign-up process, you will receive an email with instructions on how to create your myUABMedicine account. If you do not receive your email invitation, please call UAB Guest Services at 205-934-CARE (2273).

Step 1: Watch your email inbox for the invitation. You must create your myUABMedicine account within 90 days of receiving the invitation or you will need to request a new invitation. If you do not want to create a myUABMedicine account, just delete the email.

Step 2: In the email invitation you receive, click on the link provided. The link in the email invitation will take you to a page with quick steps on how to get started.

Step 3: Next you will be asked to verify your information. You will need to verify your date of birth and answer a security question.

Step 4: From there you will be taken to the sign-up page where you will create a unique username and password. You will need to check the box to accept the Terms of Use and select "Create Account."

Step 5: Your information will then be placed in the portal and you may begin interacting with your UAB providers.

Step 6: To access the myUABMedicine Patient Portal in the future, just visit uabmedicine.org/me and click on the login button.
