Request Medical Records

To obtain copies of medical records, a signed authorization is required from the patient or authorized representative. An authorized representative includes the parent of a minor patient (under 18 years of age), legal guardian, or individual named in the patient’s Advance Health Care Directive as the agent to make health care decisions. Proof of representation will be required.

Please download, print, complete and sign one of the following authorization forms:

You can also find step-by-step instructions online on how to complete the request for records.

If you are unable to download and print the authorization, a written request is acceptable. There is specific information that is required on all requests.

Please forward the completed request in one of the following ways:
