      We will never:

      • Sell or share your personal information with third parties without your consent.
      • Use your personal information for any purpose other than those listed below.

      At Downtown Vein Treatment Center, we take the privacy of your personal information very seriously. We understand that you trust us with your data, and we are committed to keeping the information we collect, including your name, phone, email, insurance, social security number, address, etc., secure and confidential.

      This Notice of Privacy Practices describes how we may use your protected health information (PHI) to carry out treatment, payment, or health care operations (TPO) and for other purposes that are permitted or required by law. It also describes your rights to access and control your protected health information. “Protected health information” is information about you, including demographic information, that may identify you and that relates to your past, present or future physical or mental health or condition and related health care services.

      For Treatment: We may use medical information about you to provide you with medical treatment or services. Example: In treating you for a specific Vein or Uterine Fibroids condition, we may need to know if you are allergic to specific drugs that could influence which medications we prescribe for the treatment purpose.

      For Payment: We may use medical information about you so that treatment and services you receive from us may be billed and payment may be collected from your insurance, third party or you.

      Health Care Operations: We may use as needed, your protected health information in order to support the business activities of your physician’s practice. These activities include, but are not limited to, quality assessment activities and employee review activities. For example, we may use a sign-in sheet at the registration desk where you will be asked to sign your name and indicate your vascular specialist. We may also call you by name in the waiting room when Dr. Sergei Sobolevsky is ready to see you. We may use your protected health information, as necessary, to contact you to remind you of your appointment.

      We may use your protected health information in the following situations with your authorization. These situations include: as required by law; public health issues as required by law; communicable diseases; health oversight; abuse or neglect; Food and Drug Administration requirements; legal proceedings or law enforcement; coroners; funeral directors; organ donation; research; criminal activity; military activity and national security; workers’ compensation; inmates; and other required uses. Under the law, we must make disclosures to you upon your request and when required by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to investigate or determine our compliance with the requirements of Section 164.500.

      Other permitted required uses will be made only with your consent, authorization or opportunity to object unless required by law.

      Treatment Policy

      We believe all treatment started should be treatment completed. Incomplete treatment leads to problems, complications, misunderstandings, and usually further disease. Therefore, if a plan is agreed upon and started, it should be completed.

      Appointment Policy

      An appointment in our office is a bond of trust that we will be here to serve you and you will be present for treatment. We anticipate a mutual respect for each others’ time. We will see you at your appointed time, and we ask your adherence to your visit as scheduled.

      Financial Arrangement Policies

      We believe we have the responsibility to use the best professional care, skill, and judgment in planning and delivering your treatment. We will also establish mutually agreed-upon written financial arrangements before treatment is begun and expect your commitment to them.
