Notice of Privacy Practices
Usually, most of us can work out life’s problems. But sometimes you need a little help...
This notice includes a description of how medical information may be used and disclosed and how this information is accessed. Please review it carefully.
I am legally required to protect your confidentiality in the state of Florida. This means that you decide when and who I can disclose information to. I can only disclose information about you when you sign a written release form. This form is legally required for me to be able to disclose information about you.
Anything you tell me remains between you and me. There are three major exceptions to the confidentiality laws; if you threaten to harm yourself or someone else or if someone is harming you. I am mandated to report it in an effort to keep someone safe. This does not mean that you cannot discuss any of these issues; on the contrary, they are important to discuss to keep you safe.
I will not break confidentiality without discussing it with you first unless I believe someone is in immediate danger. However, I will do my utmost to be respectful of the confidences with which you have entrusted to me.
