CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The man who created and operated Nason Medical Center issued a statement Wednesday after learning patients have not received medical records they have requested.
Dr. Barron Nason said he ceased having any ownership in Nason Medical Center, LLC, on or about January 2015, but continued to serve as an employee until February 2016.
As an employee, "he had no say-so in the business matters of the company, including, but not limited to, the handling of patient records," the release states.
Nason "has sent correspondence demanding that Nason Medical Center, LLC provide all patience with their medical records at once," the release states.
Nason said he does not have possession or control over any patient records held by the company, but supports patients' efforts to collect their records.
