Dr.s Thatcher & Boudreau recognizes the importance of patient privacy. As such, it is the policy of this practice to treat all medical information as confidential and absent extraordinary or emergency circumstances; this practice will not disclose a patient’s medical information without appropriate patient consent.
Also, each patient has the right to request in writing that we restrict how protected and private medical information is used or disclosed to carry out treatment, payment, or other health care operations. Please note that we are not required to agree to such requested restrictions, but if it does, the restriction will be binding upon this practice. Additionally, this practice may refuse to treat any patient who refuses to consent to the use and disclosure of medical information for treatment, payment or other health care operatin purposes.
