You can visit much of GYD Health Web without telling us who you are or providing us with other personally identifiable information. Some areas of the GYD Health Web allow you to contact us to ask questions, provide patient information or provide comments. When you communicate with us and request a response, we ask for your name and contact information. We use this information so that we can respond more efficiently and keep track of our correspondence.

When you request an appointment we will ask for additional information.

This also helps us begin setting up a record for you, so that registration is easier when you arrive at the hospital. Finally, by requesting some basic information we discourage correspondence from those who are not serious about their healthcare, or might be contacting us for the wrong reasons. This allows us to focus more attention on patients who genuinely seek our help.

If you do provide us with personally identifiable information, such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, you agree that we may contact you through a variety of means such as postal mail, phone, or e-mail to provide you with information we believe may be of interest to you, unless you opt out of this service by contacting us as indicated below.
