The Patient’s Bill of Rights and Responsibilities is created to promote the interests and well-being of patients and to promote better communication between the patient and the health care provider. Florida law requires that we recognize your rights while you are receiving medical care at our center, and that you respect our right to expect certain behaviors from you. See Section 381.026, Florida Statutes for more information.
