As a patient, you can be assured of confidentiality in all services. By law, no one may access your health records without your written consent.*
*Exceptions to confidentiality provision include the following: records subpoenaed by a Court; you intend to physically harm someone; you intend to commit suicide; you are involved in a felony; a medical emergency threatens another person’s life or health; there is evidence that you have been involved in abusing a child, elderly person, or a person with mental retardation; or spousal abuse/neglect.
Note that while the staff will aim to meet as many of your needs as possible, we do not have the same capacities as a full-service clinic, doctor’s office, or emergency room. If we cannot meet your needs in our office, you will be referred off campus for treatment, including physician specialists, diagnostic tests, lab work, and X-rays. You will be financially responsible for expenses incurred for these services.
