More Information on Obtaining Medical Records

Faxing the form to us is the fastest and easiest way to obtain copies of your records. However, you may also request a copy of your records by sending a completed and signed printout of the medical information release authorization form to the address on the authorization form. If the patient is a minor or unable to give consent, the signature of a parent, guardian or other legal representative is required.

Additional authorization may also be required for the release of specifically protected or privileged information. Certain information can take up to 30 days for processing. Contact the Release of Information representative at the number listed on the authorization form with questions about specific requests.

To request medical records of a deceased patient, the request must be accompanied by authorization from the executor of the estate. Please include a copy of the executor paperwork with the authorization. Please note: a fee may be associated with a medical record request.
