Data Breach at Local Plastic Surgery Center

Posted: Updated:

Sierra Plastic Surgery, LLC says it has been informed of a possible data breach of its electronic records.

Sierra Plastic Surgery, LLC says the breach happened between August 11, 2011 and September 23, 2011. A terminated employee apparently had access to the network after leaving the company.

The plastic surgery center says that employee may have viewed or printed copies of surgery estimates that included names and birthdates and in rare cases, the employee also accessed the names of insurers, prescriptions, surgery notes and payment balances.

Sierra Plastic Surgery, LLC says in less than 50 instances the former employee accessed sensitive information including social security numbers, personal contact and payment information.

Sierra Plastic Surgery, LLC says it has contacted the former employee and her attorney and "has verified under penalty of perjury that she has returned all records and not kept any records."

The plastic surgery center says not all patients were affected and they are sending individual letters to people whose data was breached.

If you have any questions you can call (866) 979-2596.

Sierra Plastic Surgery, LLC says it has conducted a review of its data storage and is assured the breach will not happen again.
