Request Medical Records

Patient Requests for Medical Records/Results

You can request your medical records online and receive them by email, mail, or fax. We generally respond to requests within 2–5 business days. Please note, some requests may require longer processing times of up to 15 days.

A patient, or their legal representative, may inspect and/or obtain a copy of their medical records, or have copies of medical records sent to another facility. Kaweah Health requires a completed and signed Authorization for Use or Disclosure of Health Information form and a copy of a valid, government-issued ID before releasing any documents to anyone, including the patient.

If you do not want to request your records online, you can download and complete the form below. You will need to include a copy of a valid government-issued ID.
