Medical Records and X-rays

Medical Records and X-rays are a permanent part of your medical record. We do not release our originals. These are not copied on demand or at the time of office visits. You must submit a written request in advance along with a photo ID. We use ACOPI, a copy service, to copy our records, and they will contact you regarding the fee to copy your medical records.

We do not release our original X-ray films. There is a fee to copy X-rays which must be paid in advance via money order, cashiers check or cash. Please contact Ext. 226 to find out the cost of copying your X-rays.

Disability and Family Leave Act

Disability and Family Leave Act Forms are completed in work rotation. Present these to the front office staff at time of visit with your portion completed to its entirety. When the doctors attempt to complete these during a visit, they generally do not complete these to their entirety and many times, the disability company or employer will have them resent for proper completion. If you ask the doctor to complete these forms during a visit, an answer can be missed, which could cause a delay in your disability payment. These forms can take anywhere from 3 to 10 days depending on the information needed from your medical record. Disability Forms are $10.00 each and Family Leave Act Forms are $25.00 each. We accept only money order, cashiers checks or cash for these services. The patient must complete their portion, date and sign, and bring or mail to the office the fee per form.
