Former patients of Dr. Peter LaFuria can get copies of their medical files, but it could take up to four weeks. The Sheriff's office has hired a copying service with expertise in medical record reproduction to make copies. A local doctor will help disperse the file copies to patients from his office.
A patient can request a copy of their medical file by calling Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Detective Elizabeth Zaunbrecher at 491-3737. Arrangements will be made for the patient to pick up the file. The files are being processed based on last names. It could take up to four weeks before a file is ready depending on the patient's name. If the patient has a medical emergency they need to specify that when speaking with Detective Zaunbrecher.
