Re: Blood test results confidentiality?

I've had a similar problem getting test results from my doctor. This largely stems from a (not uncommon) paternalistic attitude, the (incorrect) assumption that we mere mortals could not possibly understand the numbers. I've had this from GPs and specialists.

Stand your ground and ask for a full copy of the test results. As NAT says, it is indeed your right. What I have found that works is "I will be moving back to the US, and therefore will need to have complete records."

More important - if your doctor won't give you your test results, look for a doctor who has a tad more respect for his/her patients.
