Medical Records Policies

The patient has the right to receive copies of their medical records, upon the patient’s written authorization, the doctor’s authorization to release the records, and payment of required fees (fees are in accordance with the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure 735ILCS 5/8-2001(d)).

The patient may contact us by phone to initiate the request.  All receipts of medical records require patient’s signature for release of information and picture ID to verify identity.   Please allow up to 10 business days for the request to be complete, depending on the size of the medical record being requested.  Our office will notify the patient when the records are ready for pickup and the fees due for the record copies.

If you are transferring your records in from another provider you may authorize that provider to send the records directly to our office or complete our written authorization form and we will request the records from the provider.

Please call our office with any questions about medical record copies.
