We Seek Partners Who Value High Quality Healthcare Standards
Our Speech-Language Pathologists
Skilled services are provided by speech-language pathologists who have earned masters degrees, completed the rigorous certification process required by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association, and developed skill-sets for therapeutically interventions that support patients' rehabilitation of abilities impaired from specific medical conditions.
Our speech-language pathologists secure National Provider Identifiers (NPI) as a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Administrative Simplification Standard.
Our practices are informed by regulations established by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists,Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 401, Texas Department of Health Services, Texas Telehealth Regulations, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
Patients' Protected Health information is used for medically-necessary documenting and reimbursement purposes. Every effort has been made to ensure that our patients' personal information is protected as mandated by HIPAA and The Privacy Act.
We adhere to the Doctrine of Informed Consent, or Substituted Consent when patients are unable to make medical decisions about their care; to disclose the nature of the treatment or procedures; explain alternative treatments if available; explain risks; and explain benefits to treatment options.
We believe that privacy is a right belonging to patients and it is their right to be left alone or to control personal information.
We view confidentiality as a duty to protect patients' information from inappropriate release or disclosure.
We seek to gain the trust of patients and their families so that they are likely to engage in therapeutic activities that are medically necessary, to promote patients' honesty about their relevant symptoms so that treatment diagnoses may be accurate so that appropriate treatment options may be established.
