Endoscopy Patients Can Request Medical Records

Posted: Updated:

Endoscopy clinic patients who are trying to obtain their medical records following a hepatitis scare can now make a request with the police if they are unable to get them through their doctor.

Metro and the FBI seized more than 2,000 boxes of files when they conducted search warrants on several clinics last week, including two of which have been linked to hepatitis C cases.

Those two clinics are:

  • Gastroenterology Center of Southern Nevada / Endoscopy Center of Southern Nevada, 700 Shadow Lane, Suite 165A, 165B and 470, Las Vegas, Nevada.
  • Desert Shadow Endoscopy Center / Gastroenterology Center of Nevada, 4275 Burnham Ave, Suite 101 and 101B, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Police have spent the past week cataloging the files in an effort to make it easier to get them back to patients.

Patients are being urged to check with their primary care doctor first to see if the file is available that way. If it isn't, starting on Monday, March 24, patients with emergency requests can go to any Metro sub-station and fill out a Medical Records Request Form.
