Can I get a copy of my child’s record?
Our patients’ medical records are the property of Papago Buttes Pediatric Center and copies are available upon request. The following are fees associated with records, letters written by our physicians, and forms completed. Fees are to be paid at the time the request is made and will not be forwarded to our physicians until full payment is received.
Medical Records: With written consent, we will send records where requested. Records sent to other physicians are done as a courtesy and there will be no charge. Records sent to or picked up by the patient / legal guardian requires a fee of $25.00 per patient record. records requested for third parties (attorneys, insurance companies, etc.) require a minimum fee of $35.00.
Letters: On occasion our physicians are asked to write a letter on behalf of our patients, there is a required fee of a minimum of $10.00 per letter requested.
Forms: There are many forms a parent is required to have completed such as school, camp, sports and other sources. If a form is presented to the staff and physician during a scheduled visit it will be completed at no fee as part of the exam. If a form is presented without a scheduled visit there will be a required fee of $5.00 per form.
