Medical Records Request
All patient healthcare information is protected by law and is confidential. Therefore, medical records cannot be released to any person without the authorization of the patient or the patient’s legally authorized representative (unless authorized by law).
A patient’s family member (parent/legal guardian) may request copies of medical records if a patient is a minor or incapacitated. Parent/Guardian must have the written permission of the patient to release copies of the record, or have the patient’s power of attorney. The name of the family member must be documented on the request.
The protection and privacy of your health information are a top priority for us. At times you may need to access or obtain your medical records for personal needs, continuation of care, or other reasons. As a patient, if you are subscribed to a membership, you can access your medical record online through PracticeSuite or by submitting a request directly to us.
