How can I gain access to my medical records? Where do they store them and how does one go about obtaining copies of his records from the early 80's
Are my records from 1985 really kept for that long? We are dealing with the gov. Is the retrieval of my records from that long ago really possible or am I going to find this an impossible task? Are there services one can hire to do all the leg work in a case like mine? I am in a bad way right now dealing with pain levels that put me under heavy medication. If there helpful services one can hire I would do so. Thank you
