Office Policies

PT Center for Women welcomes you to our office!
We recognize that, at times, you may need to bring your children to your appointment. Our practice has a busy waiting room, potentially dangerous equipment, supplies and medications, which present a safety hazard for unsupervised children. We also need to maintain a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Please bring a responsible adult to supervise your children during your visit. If there is a risk to your family or other patients, you may be asked to reschedule.

Confidentiality
Your medical information is strictly confidential. We will not release it to anyone without your written consent. That includes phone calls we may receive from family members or relatives regarding your appointments or visit outcomes. A family member may, however, accompany you to your appointments if you wish. An authorization form must be signed if you want a copy of your medical records sent to another provider.

Prescriptions and Refills
If you need a prescription refill, please call during office hours so your chart can be reviewed and documented. We discourage prescribing new medications over the phone or online as only an office visit will assure an accurate diagnosis.

Medical Records
You need to sign a release of information form whenever you ask for a copy of your medical records regardless of whether it is for personal use or for another provider/second party. Please be as specific as possible when indicating what information you need copied. General information on your chart is:
  • History and physical
  • X-ray and lab reports
  • OB records
  • Progress notes
  • Operative report
  • Hospital notes
  • Discharge summary
  • Diagnostic test results (scans, etc.)
  • Biopsy reports
