Make no statement to mental health worker because they have no science. No medical model. No evidence based medicine and there is no test to determine a chemical imbalance of the brain.

Medical records are introducing corruption based on the hearsay of some doctor that may have alternative motives or a personality flaw in judgement of yours.

I don't see where medical records will of any benefit except to Mark thru patient to other doctors that stand behind each others opinion.

The privacy of medical records will not be guarded over time.Com puter malfunctions, human error, and government intrusion will violate confidentiality at an increasing rate in the not so distant future.
Information sharing across health networks is being conducted too casually and without respect for the person under medical care. Doctors, remember you took an oath to do no harm. You are still under that oath. Do the honorable thing and preserve the sacred trust which you have been given.
