Patient Resources

Here you will find what you need to do once you have scheduled your appointment and some helpful links to some common ENT issues.

Thank you for considering Marin ENT for your otolaryngologic care. We have made your first visit easy by placing all you would need to start your journey at your fingertips. Start out by going to “Your First Visit” page. There you will find how to register for your first visit with one of our wonderful providers. You can find out where we are located and how to navigate our online registration process.

If you still need help, you can send us a message by going to our “Contact” page. Here you can find the direct extensions of the different departments in our office. If it is billing or medical records requests, you can easily navigate to the correct person to help you.

Once you are an established patient in our practice you will be invited to access your chart through our Patient Portal. Here you can access your past consultations with our providers. These are populated with information via a CCD. The Continuity of Care Document (CCD) is an electronic document exchange standard for sharing patient summary information. The portal is not intended to show your complete chart but only a brief summary. A more comprehensive record is sent to your primary or referring doctor. You can also request a copy of your complete consultation from medical records (415-461-9770 ext. 1).

Through the portal, you can also send and receive secure messages directly to and from our providers. You can attach images of your specific concerns that our providers can see within your medical records. Portal communications are surveyed only on work days, if you have an urgent concern please call our office and you can be connected with the doctor on call on weekends and times outside of the normal workday.

If you are concerned about your privacy, please advise us on your visit and we can opt you out of the patient portal.

Please scroll down to the bottom of this page for other helpful pages that you can find in our site.
