Medical records

I used to drink heavy about 10 years ago but have stopped and been through a treatment program. I have asked my doctor to remove this from my medical record and he said ok but it would still be on my past record. If I change doctors would the new doctor be able to see all this?

I have a lot of pain but I've never had a full body scan done! I've never been diagnosed officially on why I have my pain.

From my experience, this is, unfortunately, part of your permanent health record. You might be able to lose it if the two doctors don't reconcile their health records and you don't give that information to the new doctor.

@M28115w You absolutely can request your medical records and carry them with you. Remove or black out parts that you want to be private, as you do not neeed to disclose all of your records at all. Permanent just means in that hospital, or office, facility. If you go out of state, the only thing that links medical records are insurance companies. They may sell your data like all of ours but it won’t be carried with you unless you decide to show it, keep it on there or use insurance records. Hope this helps my friend! 25 years in medical records and healthcare! UGH!
