TX: Medical documents found in recycling dumpster

Brian Mylar reports:

A box full of medical documents containing sensitive personal information from patients that was found in a recycling dumpster sparked a KSAT-12 Defenders investigation.

A good Samaritan alerted the Defenders to the dumpster outside a church in Alamo Heights.

Inside was a treasure trove of medical documents from the offices of Dr. Huyen Nguyen and Dr. Orlando Kypuros.

There were documents regarding patients’ medical conditions as well as social security numbers and drivers license numbers.
