Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
A doctor is obligated to document any encounter with a patient, which is by definition an entry into the medical record.
Could you clarify what type of issue you want to address and how you want to limit that information?
I asked for some clarification and have not heard back.
The details of the situation are necessary, because there are certain accommodations that can be made to accomplish certain goals. For example, if your concern is that the diagnosis may get entered into an insurance database, then you can make arrangements with your doctor and office that you will be seen on a cash basis, so that there is no filing of an insurance claim.
If you can provide details of what you are trying to accomplish, then I can better discuss what you need to request from your doctor.
