We are committed to preserving the privacy of your personal health information. In fact, we are required by law to protect the privacy of your medical information and to provide you with a notice describing:
We use health information about you for treatment, to obtain payment for treatment, for administrative purposes, and to evaluate the quality of care that you receive. We may be required or permitted by certain laws to use and disclose your medical information for other purposes without your consent or authorization. As our patient, you have important rights relating to inspecting and copying your medical information that we maintain, amending or correcting that information, obtaining an accounting of our disclosures of your medical information, requesting that we communicate with you confidentially, requesting that we restrict certain uses and disclosures of your health information, and complaining if you think your rights have been violated.
We have available a detailed Notice of Privacy Practices which fully explains your rights and our obligations under the law. We may revise our Notice from time to time. The effective date at the top right-hand side of this page indicates the date of the most current Notice in effect. You have the right to receive a copy of our most current Notice in effect. If you have not yet reserved a copy of our current Notice, please ask at the front desk and we will provide you with a copy.
If you have any questions, concerns or complaints about the Notice or your medical information, please contact our Privacy Officer Elisa Liotta at (212) 888-7372.
