Norris Medical Records

Requesting Copies of Your Medical Records

Because your medical information is confidential and requires a high level of security, a written request with your signature is required prior to releasing copies of medical records. Requests for copies of medical or mental health information are completed within 7-10 working days upon receipt of a valid, signed release form. There is no charge for copies of medical records for continuity of health care.

All medical records of patients seen at Norris Health Center are retained for 11 years after the last patient visit. After 11 years of inactivity, medical records are confidentially destroyed.
