OUR MAIN CONCERN IS PATIENT CONFIDENTIALITY.
PROTECTION OF YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS IS OF UTMOST CONCERN AND IS OUR PRIORITY.
Photocopies of your records are available upon request and shall be released only with an appropriate patient authorization and/or in accordance with applicable state and federal laws. An Authorization to Disclose of Healthl Information is available at the Release of Information Desk in the Health Information Management Department; OR you may use the link provided to print a valid authorization form to fill out and fax to us. If you are aware of any information in your records such as psychological or psychiatric impairments, drug abuse, alcoholism, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, including acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), or testing for HIV you will have to indicate this in your request. This is for compliance with all federal and state laws for the purpose of safeguarding your information. In the course of processing your request, the Release of Information Representative will contact you if a special authorization is necessary to release your medical records.
In order to process your request expeditiously, the following information should be included:
