Obtaining Your Medical Record
If you need your medical records, we will be happy to send them to you. We work to make the process as convenient and timely as possible, while also taking the necessary steps to make sure we protect your privacy and identity.
Access to medical records is available to patients and legal guardians in the following ways:
Get secure online record access to most records through MyChart.
- Don't have an account?
Create an online patient account for a safe and simple way to access information from your electronic health record (EHR). Once you have an account, you can also download or share records with others through MyChart. Some records may not be available online, but you can request copies of those additional records through your MyChart account at any time. MyChart is also available both via mobile app (iPhone, Android) and web browser. Records can be provided in an electronic format, if preferred.
- Granting friends and family access to your MyChart medical record.
Individuals 18 years of age or older may grant friends and family proxy access to their MyChart account at any time by logging in and granting access directly through the
portal. Parents or legal guardians of minor children up to age 11 may request proxy access to their child’s MyChart account by completing the MyChart Proxy Form.
Parents or legal guardians of minor children from ages 12 - 17 may request proxy access to their child’s MyChart account by completing the MyChart Proxy Form, however due to state laws regarding minors, records are not available in MyChart but can be requested using the forms below.
All medical information that is made available in MyChart will also be made available to your proxy. You control who can have proxy access to your MyChart account by granting and revoking access at any time from within your account.
