Further, the court said Noah will have to sign off on Riley obtaining his records from other doctors and pharmacies. The order said he will have to provide authorizations from Michael Aziz, MD, James Tibone, MC, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Duane Reade Pharamcy, Pharmacies in California, his personal trainer(s), MINK Radiologic Imaging and Meyer Institute of Sport.
