While there is no admission fee, please remember the museum operates on donations, and donations are welcome.

Physicians must provide medical records
According to McKinley Lewis, a public information specialist with the Florida Department of Health, state law requires physicians to provide patients with non-psychiatric records upon request.
The law also requires physicians to make arrangements for patients to obtain their records when the physician terminates practice. Disciplinary action can be taken against a physician's license if they do not comply with these requirements.
