How to get started

If you recently visited us and gave your email address to the front desk staff, you may have been automatically enrolled in the patient portal. An email would have been sent to you from Lifeline Medical Associates with your temporary username, password, and security answer. Once you receive the email, go to and enter in the credentials under the “Already a Member?” section.

- If you did not receive this email, be sure to check your Spam or Junk folder for this message.

- If you did not supply your email address to the front desk staff and would like to enroll in the patient portal, contact your office and ask for a token to sign up for the portal. Once you receive that token, go to and click on the I AM NEW HERE button to begin the enrollment process.
