***JUST A REMINDER***

We have a planned system upgrade on July 8th.

On July 8th our medical record system software will be getting updated. This is a mandatory upgrade that will require our system to be fully shut down from 8 AM-2 PM. We will have emergency backup from South Deer field Family Practice.

This means we cannot process scripts, review a medical record or answer a question within your chart for a brief amount of time.

We have schedule this around a quarterly staff meeting so the impact should be very little on you. Again we will be up and running by 2 pm.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and we will be back to normal operations as soon as we can.

Thank You,
