General Information


The Health & Wellness Center has a very strict set of guidelines regarding confidentiality. We cannot release any information to your parents, another physician, or your friends without your expressed written consent. This means that we cannot even confirm or deny that you have scheduled an appointment. If you feel as though you would like us to be able to discuss your appointment with anyone, you must sign a release of information. The only exception to this policy is in the case of a life threatening injury or illness.
