Can anyone tell me the legal issues around this? I am in CA and would like to get my file(s) from a therapist I worked with for a year. I wanted to know what to expect. Is this something where you ask only for copies? Thanks.
Your medical records legally belong to you, not the doctor/doctor's office/hospital. You should be able to request and obtain them with no issue.
You will generally only be provided with copies and not the originals though, since they do need to keep records for their patients.
