Laws for the privacy of a minor over the age of 12 by the State of California for certain categories of information restrict parents and legal guardians from having access to the minor’s records without the consent of the minor patient and the provider.

Who has access to my medical records?
Access to all medical records are obtainable by any law enforcement agency: sheriff, coroner, FBI, local police departments, Child Protective Services (CPS), etc. in the role of their investigation. Doctors, doctor's offices, and hospitals affiliated with your care request records and often require the consent of the patient.
What if I am unable to get my own records?
A patient’s legal representative may request records if the release is submitted with a copy of legal documents stating they are the legal representative. LVMC offers Advance Directives forms free of charge.
Should I get a copy of my records if I move?
Not necessarily. With your consent, LVMC medical records are available to your new physician. For further information, please call our staff at 805-737-3330.
