How do I email my doctor?

You may communicate with 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 helps you manage your health and stay connected with your UAB health care providers. You can log in to this tool from anywhere you have access to the Internet. You can use it to communicate with your health care providers, request refills for current prescription medications, view selected lab or other test results, view summaries of your visits, see lists of your current and active medications and allergies, and more. To sign up for the patient portal, please follow the instructions in the patient portal email invitation, which you can request from your doctor, when entering the hospital, or by clicking on the myUABMedicine button at
