We will disclose information in compliance with applicable laws and regulations and will require recipients to protect the information and use it only for the purpose provided.
By "personal information," we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, social security number, or telephone number. We may request personal information from you at our site in order to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions or deliver a product or service.
E-Mail and Asking Questions
First of all, it is important that you realize that any content posted on this site is not intended as a substitute for direct information from a trained mental health clinician or another medical professional. You should always consult directly with a medical professional for diagnosis and treatment of any specific life issues, mental health problems, or immediate health concerns. The information on our website is not medical advice!
We welcome your health-related comments or questions or general questions about our website and have provided e-mail contact opportunities for that purpose. We will share your comments and questions with our customer service personnel and those employees most capable of addressing your questions and concerns.
Please note that your e-mail, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. If you wish, you may contact us instead via telephone at the numbers provided. Although we receive the emails and read them, it is important that you understand if we receive questions about care or other personal information we will not return the email. You may impart information you don't consider confidential and it will be placed in your file. If you send an email regarding an appointment, we may call or confirm that appointment via email.
Where you provide information to us using the "Contact Us" form, you are advised that this is an ordinary email we receive with the information you type in. For your reply, please indicate whether you wish us to respond to you by telephone or by your e-mail address (please note that such an e-mail reply is not delivered in a secure server environment, hence not private, see notes about regular e-mail, above). We follow the rules of HIPAA and will not send confidential information over the unsecured email system.
Beyond answering your question, website management personnel will periodically review questions (without patient identifiers or e-mail addresses) to determine if additional information should be placed on the website that would benefit other patients.
