How to request medical records at Scripps

Scripps takes great care to ensure your health information is kept private and secure. If you need copies of your medical records for yourself or a third party, we can help.

By completing and submitting the form(s) below, patients can request copies of their medical records or disclosure of that information to someone else.

Download, print out and complete the forms

To request your medical records from Scripps — including radiology reports and images — download, fill out and sign the form below. Be sure to include the dates of service. Without that information, the request cannot be completed.

To allow a representative to act on your behalf with regard to personal health information, a Designated Personal Representative (PDF, 160 KB) form needs to be completed and signed by the patient.

Please read the forms carefully before you sign them, and be aware that whoever you give your health information to must be responsible for securing it.
