Records requested for continuing care purposes will be sent directly to your physician or other health care facility. If you have a follow-up appointment, please be sure to include the date of your appointment on your request. An abstract of your record containing all pertinent parts of the chart including doctors’ reports, laboratory, radiology, and other diagnostic test results will be faxed or mailed to your health care provider at no charge.
All other requests for copies of the medical record are usually processed within 10 working days. (Some requests may take as long as 30 days to process.) There are fees associated with photocopying medical records that are set in accordance with New Jersey State law. We will let you know how much the total charge will be once we retrieve your records.
