Physician Disclaimer

Physicians who participate in your care, including, for example, surgeons, radiologists, anesthesiologists, pathologists, and consultants may be private practitioners and may not be employees or agents of St. Joseph’s Health.

Physicians who practice at St. Joseph’s Health must meet certain educational and experience requirements; however, St. Joseph’s Health is not responsible for the specific care provided to you by your physician. If you wish to change your physician, ask to speak with a nurse manager.

St. Joseph’s Health cannot assure that all physicians or consultants participate with all insurance plans. Your physicians’ bills will be separate from the Medical Center bill. Please contact your insurance company to find out if these physicians are covered by your insurance plan. If you have questions regarding a physician bill, please contact the physician’s billing office.

St. Joseph’s Health is committed to protecting your online privacy. We feel it is important for you to know how we handle the information we receive from you via the Internet. You can visit www.StJosephsHealth.org without revealing any personal information. However, you are required to provide an e-mail address to subscribe to a newsletter.

For Our Community, Patients & Their Loves Ones

Please join us on social! Through our social channels – Facebook, Instagram, Threads, LinkedIn, and X (formally known as Twitter) – we hope to engage with individuals and organizations interested in health and medical care, research, and education.

We welcome and encourage open discussion on our social channels – including but not limited to our written web content, YouTube channel, and other online story-sharing forums – and look forward to your comments, stories, and experiences you want to share.

Note, we make sensible efforts to monitor participation to ensure that you stay on topic, are courteous, and avoid making offensive comments. Please remember that information posted on any of our social media platforms should not be considered medical advice and should not replace a consultation with a health care professional. Additionally, we have the sole right to review, edit, and/or delete comments deemed inappropriate. Comments including but not limited to the following may be deleted or edited by our social moderators:

  • Abusive or hurtful comments
  • Off-topic and redundant comments (this includes promotion of events, groups, pages, websites, organizations, and programs not related to or affiliated with St. Joseph’s Health)
  • Comments that use foul language or “hate speech” (for example, including but not limited to abusive racial, ethnic, or gender language)
  • Personal attacks or defamatory statements or comments (i.e., making negative, personal, or untrue comments), instead of just criticizing his/her posting, opinion, or comments
  • Comments that violate the privacy of our patients and their families

Please Note: Once you post something online, thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of people have the potential to read your words, even years from now.  For your own safety, exercise caution when posting medical information on any of our social media sites and that you not disclose personal, identifiable information including your location, medical record number, financial information, etc.
