How do I obtain
a copy of my health information/ medical records?
During normal business hours, you may come to the office with identification and sign a HIPAA compliant authorization. If it is not practical for you to come to the office, you may mail a notarized HIPAA complaint authorization to us and we will mail the copies to you or to whomever you designate. We will be happy to mail you a HIPAA complaint authorization for you to sign in front of the notary if you need one. If your records are not within the last 5 years, they may have to be obtained from our storage facility. Routine requests take approximately one week. Requests for patient care are processed immediately. Routine charges for personal copies are 75 cents per page.
How do I get forms, such as disability, FMLA, etc., completed by my doctor?
You must either mail or bring into the office the form and a HIPAA compliant patient authorization so your physician can release the information to the requestor. We will be happy to mail you a HIPAA complaint authorization for you to sign in front of a notary if you need one. Most forms require a $15 fee which is payable prior to form completion. The expected turn around time is 7-10 business days.
