You can send a letter to the doctor asking that the information be corrected and that the letter be inserted into the file. That is the easiest way to handle this.
I have done this and sent it certified, RRR. I inturn got a letter back from Dr. (certified) stating I want to alter the chart which is not correct This Doctor does not listen and I have terminated the Dr. and Dr. has terminated me , Dr. states she does not feel comfortable with me. My feeling is she is a new Doctor and does not want her mistakes pointed out. . But, Doctor refuses to correct MY CHART!!! She missed my diagnosis, sent me to PT for 5-6 weeks. I kept telling her my foot really hurt. Found out 11 weeks later my foot was fractured. This was after I insisted on other test/MRI.
I need additonal information from you on case law......law code number ....I know the patient has a right to have their charts CORRECT....I would like from you the correct case/law reference number. Thank you!
