If you were a patient of Florida Digestive Health Specialists during January 2013 through October 2013, please contact us.
Personal information about some of our patients may have been accessed. Please call our Privacy Officer at the toll-free number shown below to find out if your information was accessed and, if your information was affected, to receive important safety instructions.
If your information was affected, we recommend that you:
• Call the toll-free numbers of any one of the three major credit bureaus (below) to place a fraud alert on your credit report. This can help prevent an identity thief from opening additional accounts in your name. As soon as the credit bureau confirms your fraud alert, the other two credit bureaus will automatically be notified to place alerts on your credit report, and all three reports will be sent to you free of charge.
Equifax: 1-800-525-6285; www.equifax.com; P.O. Box 740241, Atlanta, GA 30374-0241.
Experian: 1-888-EXPERIAN (397-3742); www.experian.com; P.O. Box 9532, Allen, TX 75013.
TransUnion: 1-800-680-7289; www.transunion.com; Fraud Victim Assistance Division, P.O. Box 6790, Fullerton, CA 92834-6790.
• Order your credit reports. By establishing a fraud alert, you will receive a follow-up letter that will explain how you can receive a free copy of your credit report. When you receive your credit report, examine it closely and look for signs of fraud, such as credit accounts that are not yours.
• Continue to monitor your credit reports. Even though a fraud alert has been placed on your account, you should continue to monitor your credit reports to ensure an imposter has not opened an account with your personal information.
You may contact us with questions and concerns by calling our Privacy Officer at 1-855-485-8314 during the hours of 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday, or by sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org
