@ses1978 Access to your medical records is a right you are guaranteed by law . If your doctor's office is refusing to give you a copy of our records they should be reported (to whom depends on the specific situation and the state you live in). If you'd like to discuss the specifics of this issue, you can call AAFA's Support Center at (800) 727-8462 (or send an email to info@aafa.org ) and we can advise you on a plan of action.
