Only authorized individuals have access to your personal health information. This includes our staff, healthcare providers involved in your care, and other individuals or organizations as permitted or required by law.
We may share your personal health information with your insurance company or other third-party payers for the purpose of billing and payment. We may also share your information with other healthcare providers involved in your care, as necessary for treatment purposes.
We do not sell or rent your personal health information to third parties for any purpose.
We have implemented various security measures to protect your personal health information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. This includes physical, administrative, and technical safeguards.
