We are a hybrid facility, meaning we have records in both paper and electronic format. Patients seen prior to 2002, and who are currently being seen, will have a hybrid record. Patients established after 2002, will have an electronic record only. Processing times may differ depending on your personal record history.
We process our requests on the basis of which we receive them, but we strive to accommodate our patients to the best of our abilities.
