How to Access Your Medical Records
As a patient at Lynn Community Health Center, you have a right to inspect and/or obtain a copy of your medical records, or have copies of your medical records sent to another facility.
The health center requires a completed and signed Authorization for the Release of Information Form before releasing any documents. In certain cases, a patient’s physician may also be required to approve a request.
Medical records released to individuals must be picked up in person. Medical records released to another facility will be mailed directly to that facility.
