This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally Identifiable Information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as described in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your PII in accordance with our website.

What information do we collect?

We do not collect names, phone numbers, email addresses, credit card numbers, or birth dates directly on our website. Our "Schedule" buttons and "Call Us" buttons allow users to call our office from their mobile phones or computers. However, we do use Patient Connect via RevenueWell as a patient portal for those who wish to have access to their health history, pay a bill online, or securely message our practice.
