Legally they have to make your records available to you for at least 6 years. This is true if the practice closes or sells. Contact the Tennessee branch of the AMA (American Medical Association ). They should be able to provide direction in this matter. Otherwise, the practice or family personally can be sued.

To well, not a stupid question since there are laws about your medical records. Maybe you should not comment on things you know nothing about.

OK..the AMA has nothing to do with this. To file a complaint you have to contact the board of medical examiners in Nashville.

Just to save all of you some effort, I have called the AMA and the TN Medical Association and both have said they can't help us. Since DR OK Smith was affliated with any hospital and another dr we can't get our records unless he contacts us and releases them. Not good. If anybody hears of another Dr that will take us into their practice please let me know since the doctors I have contacted think this situation sounds shady.

You still are contacting the wrong people. The Board of medical examiners is the only one who has the power. he still has a license. They can make him produce the records or go to jail.

http://health.state.tn.us/Downloads/g5020208.... - this does not mean that you are mad at Dr. OK. This is the paperwork you have to file with the state on order to get your records to set up with another doctor. Thank you Lomus for the direction. I really appreciate it!

Talked to the state of TN this morning. Over 50 allegations reports are already filled to request patient files. Seems like there could have been a better way to resolve this, possible lawsuit pending as well

have you tried contacting the clinic you saw before you went to DR Smith ,my feeling is they only gave a copy of your records to DR Smith and retained the others for themselves ,try there .Hope this helps

I'm glad this post was put on here because I always thought that since they are MY records I can get them anytime I want them. Didn't realize that the doctor can keep them from me.
