Mental Health Records
Treatment records are kept in accordance with legal and professional standards. At Psychiatry Unplugged we use electronic records that send email reminders and allow you to register through a patient-centered portal. This system is HIPPA compliant and user friendly. If medical records need to be sent on your behalf, please complete a consent for release of information. This important form maintains your confidentiality. You will be in charge of who receives your medical information. We will always keep your records private. Charges may apply for medical record requests.

Medications used need to be monitored closely. You will be given enough medication to last to your next appointment. If you need refills on your medication, please arrange an appointment before you run out. Our medical assistants are available to advise and provide the earliest appointment possible.
Once your care plan is developed it might be important to take a leave of absence or disability time from work or school. Bring up your concerns with our doctors and bring these forms for your doctor to complete during your office visit. We do not submit disability requests online.
Electronic mail policy
Email is not a confidential means of communication. If you need to communicate with our office for routine matters it is best to call. If you have other concerns, each office has a licensed medical assistant (MA) to help you. This policy is in keeping with HIPAA laws and your confidentiality. Our electronic medical records and payment software will send email appointment reminders and receipts and will not include any sensitive medical data.
