Your Department of Health is here to help to educate and reduce the number of STDs in Florida. Early notification is key to reducing infection.

When trying to notify a patient, physicians often tell us they have experienced:

  • A disconnected telephone number

  • Returned mailings

  • Patient not picking-up the prescribed medication.

  • Parents intercepting their child's telephone call and getting upset with the provider for not disclosing the reason for the call.

  • Spouses not being cooperative and demanding the reason for the telephone call.

Department of Health staff can help to locate patients and refer them back to your office. We also will call your office after the patient is located.
