Medical Records

Medical records let us keep track of your medical history and care.

In the past, medical records were written on paper and kept in folders. Today, we use a state-of-the-art electronic medical record system. This is a safe and more efficient way for us to keep track of your health needs and give you better care.

Do you need your medical records?

You can get copies of your records by completing the Medical Record Release form available here. You can either print this form and fax it, mail it to us or drop off in person.
