Dear RPA Patients,

Our online portal, MyChart, will not be accessible from 8pm on Saturday, January 12th, through Sunday, January 13th, at 8am, while we are upgrading our electronic medical record.

When you access and log in to the patient portal on Sunday morning you should expect a new user experience! MyChart will have an updated look and feel. It’s going to be EPIC!

If you haven’t yet signed-up for MyChart, please ask our Front Desk to sign you up the next time you are in the office!
