Your privacy is important to us. Your appointment takes place in real time and is not recorded. The equipment is all on a secured network that meets the same privacy and security standards as the medical equipment you find at SHS.
In addition to the clinician protecting your privacy, there are steps you can do as a patient to protect your own privacy.
