Accessing Medical Records

Physician Records

To request a copy of your medical records from a physician who treated you, contact the physician's office directly.

Forms

Patients who wish to request their medical records need to complete the "Hospital Release of Information Authorization Form" in English or Spanish.

PHI and SPHI

On this form, you will need to identify your information as either "Protected Health Information (PHI)" or "Sensitive Protected Information (SPHI)." You should check "SPHI" only if your medical records relate to:

  • HIV/AIDS (see below for additional required form)
  • Substance Abuse
  • Mental Health
Medical Records Related to HIV/AIDS

Patients requesting medical records with "Sensitive Protected Information (SPHI)" related to HIV/AIDS, must also complete "The New York State Department of Health Authorization for Release of Confidential HIV Related Information (NYS DOH-2557)" in English or Spanish.
