Stay in touch with the doctors who are caring for your family members. Our Choose Your Doctor feature will help you find the providers who best suit your family's health care needs.
You can find important information for your family members by visiting their doctors’ home pages. This includes information on common conditions, frequently used forms, and links to health resources that the doctor recommends.
You can access information about your loved ones' medical history, preventive health, and appointments online at any time.
Send a secure message
If the information available to you on the home page does not address your questions, our electronic messaging system is a simple and secure way to keep in touch with all of the doctors who take care of you and your family members. You can seek advice about nonurgent care when it is convenient for you. You will get a response within a couple of days, excluding weekends and holidays.
It's easy to inquire about your child's health condition or send your daughter's pediatrician an electronic copy of a school form. Use the Compose Message link and switch to the family member whose doctor you want to e-mail.
You will need each family member's MRN (medical record number), name, and birth date in order to choose a doctor for them. Medical record numbers are found on the front of the Kaiser Permanente Health Plan ID card. Use the Choose Your Doctor feature to select a doctor for the first time or to pick a different doctor.
Before you can e-mail a doctor for loved ones, you must set up access to manage your family's health. In some situations, it may take more than a week to enable this feature. See the article entitled Set up Access to Manage Your Family’s Health for more information.
If you have access to act for a family member, you can e-mail his or her doctors.
Our doctors keep important medical information and helpful forms on their home pages to make it convenient for you to take care of your family.
Once you find the doctors who best meet the needs of your family, bookmark them all so you can quickly visit their home pages whenever you need to. Simply select the Bookmark Me link from their home page.
You may visit different specialists, departments, and medical centers as you coordinate health care for your family. Review each physician's home page to find specific information about that department and how to best prepare for a visit. This will save you time and help you manage your family's care.
If you have an emergency medical condition, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.
