Appointment Reminder Preferences

Types of reminders you may receive and timing:

  • Text message reminders are sent 2 days prior to a patient’s appointment. Some patients have opted out of text reminders. In those instances, the patient receives a voice reminder instead.
  • Patients with a MyChart account will receive an e-mail to review their MyChart appointment reminder 3 days prior to their appointment. This is in addition to the text or voice reminder.
  • Patients with a MyChart account will receive an e-mail to review the MyChart quick reminder the same day as the appointment.

Opting out and in to text reminders:

To opt-out of the Text Messaging program, text "STOP" to the reminder SMS or to 1-855-510-1490. To opt-in to the Text Messaging program, text "UNSTOP" to 1-855-510-1490. To successfully re-subscribe to these messages, visit this MyChart link to change your communication preferences.
