We are committed to providing compassionate care and protecting the privacy of our patients. We may use and disclose your health information for purposes surrounding your treatment. However, we take careful precautions to maintain the privacy of your Protected Health Information (PHI) and prevent the unnecessary disclosure of your individually identifiable health information.
We will request your permission before using your individual health-related information in marketing communications such as newsletters, our website, or other community outreach. You may also choose to opt out of any marketing solicitations by contacting us at (704) 796-1918.

Use and Disclosure of Health Information
Authorization to Use or Disclose Health Information
Patient Rights Regarding Health Information
Duties of the Organization
