In conducting business, we will create a record that is unique to you, and the treatment/services that we provide to you. We are required by law to maintain the confidentiality of your PHI. We are also required by law to provide this notice of our legal obligation and our privacy practices with respect to your PHI.

We also may use/disclose your PHI in response to a discovery request, a subpoena, or other lawful request, but only after we have attempted to inform you of the request or obtained an order to protect the information being requested. We may also use/disclose your PHI in the event we are asked to do so by a law enforcement official.
