Notice of Privacy Practices
We are required by law to protect the privacy of your medical information
and to provide you with written notice describing
HOW MEDICAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU MAY BE USED AND DISCLOSED
AND HOW YOU CAN ACCESS THIS INFORMATION.
We may use or disclose to others your medical information for purposes
of providing or arranging for your health care, the payment for or
reimbursement of the care that we provide to you, and the related
administrative activities supporting your treatment.
We may be required or permitted by certain laws, regulations, or
circumstances to use and disclose your medical information for certain
purposes without your authorization. Under other circumstances we
may need your written authorization (that you may later revoke) in
order to use or disclose your medical information.
As our patient, you have important rights relating to inspecting
and copying your medical information that we maintain, amending or
correcting that information, obtaining an accounting of our disclosures
of your medical information, requesting that we communicate with you
confidentially, requesting that we restrict certain uses and disclosures
of your health information and complaining if you think your rights
have been violated.
We have available a detailed NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES which fully
explains your rights and our obligations under the law. We may revise
our NOTICE from time to time. The EFFECTIVE DATE at the top of this
page indicates the date of the most current NOTICE in effect.
You have the right to receive a copy of our most current NOTICE in
