Privacy Policy

At the Santa Monica Spine Institute we understand that your privacy is of primary concern. Because of our relationships and our unique location in Beverly Hills, we have many patients in the entertainment industry. We take firm steps to maintain discretion and safeguard confidentiality for all our patients.

We also have implemented a coordinated and thorough privacy policy for our staff. All of our staff members undergo specialized training about the safeguarding of patient privacy. We have a designated privacy officer to supervise our efforts to protect your confidentiality. All of our medical records are kept in locked cabinets in a section of our facility not accessible by non-staff members.

We also take proactive steps to maintain your privacy. When we first meet you, we will ask you how you prefer us to communicate with you so that the utmost discretion is maintained. You might prefer us to call you only on your cell phone, for example, and not at home or at work and we honor all such requests. No member of our staff will discuss any aspect of your care (or even that you are receiving care) with anyone at any time, unless you have given us permission to do so.
