We attempted to reach all patients by regular mail back in July
2017 regarding this decision. While we made every effort to
contact all patients on our computer roster, it is inevitable
that some were missed due to simple human error or changes of
address. If you are one of those individuals, accept my apology.
Following are simple instructions on what you’ll need to do to
obtain your medical records, or, if you were an established
patient of Dr. March, to follow him to his new practice location
in Rowley at North Shore Physicians Group.
Our phone and
fax numbers are no longer in service, and the Athena Portal is
no longer functional. This web site is the only link to the
information you will need to expedite your medical care options
from here on. Our mailing address -65 Newburyport Turnpike,
Newbury MA 010951- remains valid for now.
Thank you for
your many years of loyalty and patronage.

March & all the HFP staff -
Questions and Answers regarding our closing:
What do I do about my records if I need them to go to a new PCP
I want my own personal copy?
You must sign a
HIPAA compliant medical release form -one form and
one fee per patient, one form and one fee
per single recipient/destination- indicating to
whom you wish records to be sent to.
If you use another practice's records release form, instead, you
must authorize Holistic Family Practice, Inc. as the
authorized entity releasing the records. Do not name
another practice and do not name a former provider of the
requests must be accompanied by a check made out to Holistic
Family Practice, Inc.for the amount of $20 PER
PATIENT/FORM. No requests can be processed without this
pre-payment fee. There can only be one patient's records
named and only one recipient named on each form.

WE REQUIRE A MINIMUM 10 BUSINESS DAYS TO PROCESS ANY MEDICAL
