Re: Medical records?
|Originally posted by Helix
has anyone here successfully gotten ahold of their medical records from an obstetrician? i am going to ask for mine and am just wondering if there is anything i should know. i'm in oregon, if that matters.
Yes, I faxed my OB with a typed letter of what I wanted. It went something like this:
Please forward the Medical record for _____, Date of birth_____ to the address below. Please include a prenatal and labor and delivery record with progress notes and lab results.
Thank you for your expeditious processing,
Signed dated and then typed out below.
I was amazed to see all my labs, and the fact that there were so many LIES about my labor ( pt admitted in early labor and later rec'd Pitocin for augmentation)
Fact: scheduled induction!!! But now that I know there was no medical reason, they had to make something up. ugh.
