In cases of referrals, your information is only shared once you agree to being referred to another professional for continuity of care. The minimum amount of information will be shared and you are welcome to determine what information is shared. Traditionally, you are provided with the referral information and will make contact yourself. In some incidences, the referred professional will request information for history sake. I will provide my notes and plans in most cases with your prior notification and approval.
