Desert River Solutions has been designated the official medical records custodian for your doctor's office. A medical records custodian is a company or person who has been designated to handle your private healthcare records when your doctor's office closed or your doctor retired. This allows physicians to move onto the next phase of their life while still ensuring that you have full access to your healthcare records as needed.
