A reminder that this practice will be officially closed as of June 1st. This means we will no longer provide any direct patient care – phone advice, prescriptions, school, sports, or camp forms - , etc. From that date forward, for questions about billing, insurance, or medical records, you can still reach us at our current phone number – (831) 462-5439 until June 30th – or by email – email@example.com. After that, our email address will continue, and you can send snail mail to PO Box 66442, Scotts Valley CA 95067.
In early June, Dignity Medical Foundation picked up the medical records of all patients up to 21 years of age, and patients 21 to 28 years of age who have been seen in the last 7 years. These records will be scanned into their electronic system and should be available from Dignity sometime after that. Medical records of patients over 28 years of age not seen within the last 7 years will be destroyed.
Note that it is not essential to physically have your kids’ medical records with you at their first appointment with their new doctor. Doctors often see patients at first appointments before their records arrive. We are used to this. It’s also true that even if you or the doctor have the records, the doctor may not have had the opportunity to read them prior to your appointment anyway.
We will not be retaining any medical records after June 1st except for patients 21 to 28 years of age not seen in the last 7 years. These records will be maintained at Santa Cruz Records Management until individuals reach age 28 and will be destroyed at that point. Copies of these records can be copied by request by contacting us.
For those of you near or over 28 years age and “inactive” (not seen in the last 7 years), if you asked us previously to hold your records until you could pick them up, contact us immediately. Otherwise they will be sent for destruction by June 30th.
We hope this clarifies things for everyone.
Also, we will be selling many items in the office. Please contact us if you’re interested.
