What Information Is Collected
We receive and store certain information that you give us in person, via telephone, electronic mail, online or otherwise.

You will also be asked for information to complete your patient medical records.
Here are the types of information we gather:
We collect and retain personal contact information that you submit to us voluntarily and this includes, but is not limited to, your full name, mailing address, web address, telephone number, and e-mail address. Such contact information may be used, for example, to communicate with you when necessary with respect to appointments and medical information.
We will collect and store demographic information (such as your postcode, gender and age), and use this data in your patient records to facilitate the making of appointments and to assist in the diagnosis of medical problems. Our third-party advertising companies may use anonymous demographic information harvested from web site searches for our practice, but we do not provide them with any information you supply to us.
No personally identifiable information will be shared with third parties.
