Requests for Medical Records
The patient PORTAL is the most convenient way to access and print medical records. If one does not have access to a printer Plattsburgh Primary Care Pediatrics will print minimal information FREE of charge in the instance of transferring out or aging out of pediatrics. Minimal information includes:
- Last physical
- Immunization list
- Growth chart
- Current and past medications
- Allergy list
- Problem list
Minimal information requires a 48 hour time frame to complete the request. If the caregiver or patient would like a complete copy of all related health data, our medical records staff asks a 7-10 business day turnover time. The digital copy will be transferred to an encrypted CD. A fee of $10 per child will apply. If the document will be mailed the recipient must have WinZip and Adobe to access the information encrypted.
Any information needing to be completed by the physician or nurses can be dropped of at any time with a contact number on file to get in touch when the documents are ready. There will be a minimal of 48 hours asked to fulfill the request.
