The privacy of your health information is important to me. I will maintain the privacy of your health information and I will not disclose your information to others unless you tell me to do so, or unless the law authorizes or requires me to do so.
A federal law commonly known as HIPAA requires that I take additional steps to keep you informed about how I may use information that is gathered in order to provide health care services to you.
As part of this process and when treatment with me is agreed upon, I am required to provide you with a written Notice of Privacy Practices and to request that you sign a written acknowledgment that you received a copy of the Notice.
This Notice also describes your rights regarding health information I maintain about you and a brief description of how you may exercise these rights.
If you have any questions about this Notice, please contact me at (314) 862-7250 or email Linda M. Guhe, MSW.
