Privacy Laws and Medical Records
HIPAA regulations will limit with whom we can discuss your private and protected health information. In your patient packet, you will find a form that will allow you to list the people who you allow us to discuss your care.
In 2013, we partnered with Records Quest, a medical records company that follows current HIPAA compliant rules and regulations to protect your privacy and confidentiality. Record Quest will bill you once your request is facilitated. Please allow at least 10 business days to complete your written request.
Due to the increasing administrative costs from printing unnecessary medical records, effective February 1, 2016, we will only release up to 5 progress notes of your visits with us as well as the most recent laboratory and radiology test results to your new provider as a courtesy. Your new continuing care provider will be able to request additional medical records when deemed necessary. Should you require your entire medical records released, you may be billed for this service. You can also access your medical records via the patient portal at
. You can print, download and send it to other members of your medical team.Notice of Privacy Practices
