Our Office Privacy Policy
The following policy covers the use of this website. For information on how we safeguard our patients’ privacy in our offices under the HIPAA Privacy Rule, please see our Notice of Privacy Practices.

Information We Collect and How We Use it
Atlanta Obstetrics And Gynecology Specialists only collects information from our users that is necessary to process bill payments, set up an appointment, complete medical forms, and use interactive features on this site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others or use it in any ways other than disclosed in this privacy statement.

Registration and Interactive Tools
Registration is not required in order to use our site. Users have the option to give their contact information (such as name/username and email address) in order to use our community and interactive features. Some of the tools (like polls and surveys) do not retain your personal information. My Health Record stores your personal health information in accordance with the authorization you provide at the time you set up your account.

Paying Your Bill
We request information from the user to process bill payments online. Bill payment users must provide contact information (like name and phone number) and billing information (like credit card number, expiration date, and address). We use a third-party credit card processing company that secures your information, and we do not store your personal credit card information. See “Security” heading below for more information about how we secure this information.

Online Forms
For the convenience of our patients, we make certain medical forms able to fill out and submitted online. Forms may ask about your past medical history, which we use to help manage your healthcare. Or, we may ask for your contact, insurance, and billing information, so we can make sure your claims are properly submitted.

See “Security” heading below for more information about how we secure this information. Patients are not required to submit these forms online. You can also print the forms and bring them with you or fill them out in our offices.

Notification of Changes
If we change our privacy policy, we will post those changes in this privacy policy. We will only use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected. If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify users by mail or email at least 30 days prior to such change.
