What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Massachusetts
I was in a mva in 05 and received injuries then. Suit already settled about mva. During treatment years ago I allegedly receive a diagnosis of CIDP then.
[url=http://www.gbs-cidp.org/]GBS/CIDP Foundation International[/url], majority of doctors have not even heard of my condition. Their is no cure, no remedy only remission. It is an autoimmune disorder, my body is attacking itself.
The doctor who diagnosed me then abandoned treatment and refused to send my attorney those medical records even though i signed releases. I had two forms of insurance also. That particular doctors office of nashoba has lost, i meant misplaced my medical records to this day. I am also still waiting for them to call back to schedule an appointment. I have an appointment in five days at umass which i personally scheduled. I can prove everything I have just declared in this page in proper documentation.
My questions are
1- Can a doctors office refuse to release medical records? I do not owe them any money and i think it is MGL ch.111s70e they are violating.
2- Can a doctors office refuse to send my personal medical record to my personal attorney even though i signed releases?
3-Can a doctor diagnose then abandon a patient?
4-Can a doctor hide my medical records from my attorney and I due to their negligence, incompetence or medical malpractice?
It may be hard to conceptualize how a breakdown may occur in our healthcare system such as this. I am 26 years old and have CIDP which causes me to be permanently disabled and fully thank any and all doctors who have refused to treat me due to my disability and continue to this day deny responsibility.
