Please note that the Release of Information (ROI) must name the guarantor and be signed by the client to allow our Billing Dept to communicate with the guarantor regarding billing/account matters.

Complete forms can be delivered to our office in person, faxed (503-231-8153), mailed (5200 SW Macadam Ave, Suite 580, Portland, OR 97239), and uploaded to our secure file portal (visit this page: https://www.pdbti.org/secure-upload/).
