Answer: Some plans do require pre-authorization. Patients should check with their insurance provider or benefits administrator to see if this is necessary. We can assist in this process where applicable.
We keep original exam images and reports. Most Physicians have access via web to view the images and report. Others will receive copies of patient images on film or a CD. We can provide patients and providers with their exam report and images. In any legal matters, an attorney may obtain copies of medical records directly from us with a written patient authorization.
You may obtain a copy of your medical record by completing a release form and mailing it to:

With your written authorization, film copies, or a CD, will be sent to your new doctor. Your new doctor’s office can do this for you with your written authorization. They will call and ask us to pull your films and send them via mail or by courier to their office. You may also pick up your films. A release form will need to be filled out at that time.
