Thank you for the post, I am happy to assist you by answering your questions. Have you requested a copy of your medical records to verify that the information was removed?

Expert:  MShore replied 2 years ago.
Because you did not suffer any harm, there would be no basis to award damages, therefore a suit would not be worthwhile. Courts do not award damages for what could have happened, only the harm that actually was incurred. You can however file a complaint against the physician with the board of medicine. Please let me know if you need additional guidance.

what can be done to the family to stope them for making my life miserable i never know what is going to be next
Expert:  MShore replied 2 years ago.
Do you have any good faith basis to pinpoint any family member whom likely made the report?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
it so if there is there anything that can be done do you have any information about the board of medicine so i can file a report
Expert:  MShore replied 2 years ago.
Yes, if you have a good faith basis you can file suit against the attorney. But if not, then it would not be worthwhile to make a claim against the relative. However, as it relates to the physician, you can file a complaint here: http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt/community/state_board_of_medicine/12512/consumer_information/599422
