As we work together to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, Middlesex Health is now offering Virtual Visits—also called telehealth or telemedicine visits—with providers. This will allow you to have certain types of appointments using your MyChart account on your phone, tablet, or computer.
Middlesex Health Family Medicine offers many different types of virtual appointments, including new patient visits, sick visits, follow-ups, care management visits and Medicare Wellness Visits.
Middlesex Health is proud to be supporting our community by offering the COVID-19 vaccine.
Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine at Middlesex?
Anyone who is eligible under State of Connecticut vaccine eligibility guidelines can get a vaccine at Middlesex Health.
Vaccine supply continues to be limited, so Middlesex Health is scheduling first dose appointments based on the number of doses we receive each week.
How can I learn more about the available vaccines and schedule an appointment?
Our COVID-19 vaccine information page has everything you need to know about scheduling; preparing for your appointment; how the vaccines work; how we know the vaccine is safe and effective; and much more.
Navigating COVID-19 and Keeping You Safe
We are here to provide the support you need as we work together to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Our offices are open, and we are providing care to all patients either in person or through Virtual Visits.
Please use the links below to get all coronavirus information from Middlesex Health, including our current visitor policy and how we are going above and beyond to keep you safe at all of our offices and locations.
We are proud to be recognized as a Patient Centered Medical Home—the gold-standard for primary care.
What is a Patient Centered Medical Home?
A Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a primary care practice that combines teamwork and technology to provide evidence-based care that meets your unique health care needs and goals.
What does that mean for me?
At a PCMH, you are the most important member of your health care team. You and your providers will work together to build a positive and productive long-term relationship. It also means that your primary care office is coordinating with other health care providers you might see. This leads to better care, a more positive experience and lower costs for you and your family.
How does a practice become a Patient Centered Medical Home?
A PCMH designation must be earned. The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) only recognizes a practice as a PCMH if they meet rigorous standards for high-quality, coordinated, patient-centered care.
Middlesex Health Primary Care has achieved Level 3 recognition—the highest given by the NCQA.
Mayo Clinic Care Network
Middlesex Health is Connecticut's connection to Mayo Clinic expertise.
Middlesex Health is the state's first member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. This means that our team of experts is working together with Mayo Clinic specialists on your behalf—sharing the latest lifesaving research, joining forces to resolve the most complex cases and bringing the world's most advanced medical knowledge here to Connecticut at no cost to patients.
The MyChart patient portal creates a single medical and financial record through which you can:
- access your medical information
- see lab and other test results
- access your list of medications and renew or request prescriptions
- use e-Checkin to review and update information before a visit
- interact with your providers' offices
- pay bills
Preparing For Your Visit
We understand that your time is precious, and our goal is to make sure that you get the most out of your visit with us. Please consider this short "to do" list—taking a few simple steps can help us ensure that we meet all of your expectations.
- Make a List of Your Questions & Concerns
Writing questions or concerns out ahead of time helps you and your doctor plan your visit. Plus, it reduces the chance of forgetting to mention something important.
- Prioritize Your Concerns
Ask us your most pressing questions first! This ensures that we have plenty of time to fully address what you are most concerned about, as there are some time constraints on your visit with us.
- Bring a Friend or Family Member
It is always helpful to have a second set of ears! A trusted support person will help you remember what we discussed and make sure that we don't miss anyhting important. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not allowing visitors into the office. However, we are happy to have a loved one on the phone if needed.
- Bring Your Medication Bottles
In order to have the most productive conversations about your medications, it is essential that your entire care team knows exactly what you take.
- Bring Other Helpful Medical Information
For example, if you are diabetic and you know your provider will ask about your sugar levels, bring your glucometer. If you have high blood pressure, please bring your list BP readings since your last visit.
Thank you for helping make your visit a success. We look forward to seeing you soon!
For Our Pediatric Patients
Ages: Birth to 21 Years
We offer an online patient paperwork portal for our pediatric patients. On this page, you will find a packet of paperwork customized to your child's age. Please follow the instructions to complete this packet before your appointment. You can email it to us ahead of time or bring a printed copy to your/your child's appointment.
Where we live, what we eat, and the support we have around us—it all contributes to our health and wellbeing.
