Privacy Policy

Orthopedics of Illinois appreciates the trust that you and thousands of other patients have placed in us, and one of the ways that we will protect that trust is by respecting the privacy of all our patients, even if our formal doctor-patient relationship ends. We are required by federal and state law to maintain the privacy of your health information.  Federal and state laws allow us to use your health information for treatment, payment, and for other limited uses.  We cannot use or disclose your health information for any reason not allowed by law unless you give us written permission.  The law does allow us to speak to a member of your family, another relative, or a close friend who may be involved in your care unless you request in writing that we not do so. You have the right to make an appointment to look at or get copies of your health information from us, with limited exceptions.  You must complete a form available from us to receive copies or have access to your information.  You also have the right to receive a list of instances in which we or our business associates disclosed your health information, and you have the right to request that we place additional restrictions on our use or disclosure of your health information, but we are not required to agree to additional restrictions.  You also have the right to request in writing that we communicate with you about your health information by alternative means or to alternative locations. A complete description of our policies and your rights is posted on our website (www.orthoIL.com), and you may request a copy from our receptionist or any other member of our staff. If you believe your privacy rights have been violated, you may ask to speak with our Privacy Officer, or you may submit a written complaint to the US Department of Health and Human Services. Orthopedics of Illinois diligently maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable federal standards to guard your private personal information and to assist us in preventing unauthorized access to that information.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

How long we retain your data
