A family medical practice in Lancaster has informed some of its patients that a document containing personal information was stolen last month.
Crooked Oak Family Medicine said the patient was at the Lancaster office for an appointment Feb. 5 when he became agitated and disruptive.
The patient, who was not identified, was taken to the office of the practice manager and during their meeting grabbed a stack of papers from the manager's desk and ran from the building, according to a company news release.
Lancaster General Health security notified police, who made several attempts to retrieve the document with patient information, but the man did not return the document, the news release stated.
The stolen document included patient names, genders, birth dates and whether they had received certain cancer screenings.
No Social Security numbers, addresses or credit card information was on the document and there is no evidence the patient information has been misused, the company said.
