Accessing your medical record
There are a variety of reasons and circumstances that might require that Mercy Medical Group send out a copy of your medical record, such as if you move out of the area and choose a new doctor to provide your care. Mercy Medical Group's Release of Information (ROI) Department can help you with this task.
