Medical Records

Patients have right to request a copy of their medical records. In order to obtain your medical records you must submit a written request and proof of identification. There are two ways to request these records:

  • Submit the Authorization to Release Medical Information (PDF) form
  • Submit a written request including:
    • Patient name, address and birth date
    • From whom you want the information (probably Adventist Medical Center)
    • The dates of the records requested
