A patient may sign out their films. The patient is responsible for the safekeeping and return of the films for any future visits.
Please contact our Medical Records Office at (212) 844-8680 for information and fees associated with the copying of films. Films are sent via Regular Mail unless the patient provides us with a credit card or Federal Express Account number.
