Online Patient Record Request
We now offer an online request tool for the following individuals to request patient records:
- Patients requesting their own records
- Patients requesting their own records be sent to someone else
- Parents of minor patients requesting records
- Caregivers acting on behalf of a patient (i.e. Power of Attorney)
The online tool verifies your identity by asking for a photo of your driver's license or Government issued identification, which can be taken via webcam or smartphone. There is no additional charge to use this service.
If you prefer you also have the options to download and print an Authorization for Release of Information Form, or call our Health Information Department at 651-312-1553 to request this form.
IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO USE THE ONLINE TOOL, PLEASE RETURN YOUR COMPLETED & SIGNED RELEASE FORM BY MAIL OR IN PERSON TO

Your information will be sent by mail unless otherwise specified.
New patients must complete the necessary paperwork prior to their first visit using the online patient portal.
If you choose to complete the necessary paperwork in the office, you must arrive 20 minutes early. If the paperwork delays your appointment start time, we may need to see other patients before you.
If necessary, it is acceptable to print the Release of Information form and fill it out prior to arriving at the office
If a patient arrives late or does not have their paperwork completed at the scheduled appointment time, the appointment may be rescheduled. This is to ensure that the patients who arrive on time do not experience delayed waits to see their provider. If you arrive late, you may be given the option to wait to be seen at the end of the provider's clinic or you may be asked to reschedule. If you choose to wait, we will try to minimize your wait time as best as possible, however we need to provide timely care to our other patients as well.
