We consult with medical specialist in other fields when we feel it is advisable or whenever you request a consultation. We encourage second opinions if you have any questions or doubts as to proposed treatment plan. We can assist you in finding a consulting physician.
Your medical records are confidential. However, if another physician is involved with your care, it is customary to report our findings and recommendations, unless you request otherwise. From time to time, insurance companies, their representative, state agencies, and law firms will request medical information from us. We will not release this information to them unless you have signed an authorization form as required by law (HIPAA).
