Privacy Policy

Your doctor and our health professionals, together with the clerical and administrative staff, work as a multidisciplinary team to provide the best health care possible. All of us can have access to your medical record if necessary, and physicians/IHPs will make a note in it after every appointment. Nobody is permitted to look at a medical file unless she/he is authorized. Our medical records are stored electronically allowing immediate communication between care providers. 
Privacy Policy: Here at the LOFHT, we take privacy very seriously. We take every measure possible to ensure the confidentiality of your health information. We have a detailed privacy policy which all employees are required to review and sign. It is based on the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA), a provincial legislation which governs all medical services. If you would like more information on confidentiality and privacy, or on how your medical record is managed, please ask the receptionist or your health professional.
