We may use and disclose your medical records only for each of the following purposes:

In the course of treatment, clinicians are obligated by law to report child abuse, elder abuse, and danger to self or others.

·         The right to reasonable request to receive confidential communications of protected health information from us by alternative means, or alternative locations.
