Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Yes, medical records can be subpoenaed if the person's medical history is germane to the proceedings or is related to an issue in the case.
In regard to the medical history, 5 years is normal......it is unusual for records to be available longer than that because of medical provider retention policies, etc.
If your records have been requested, you could object to the length of time being requested, and ask the court to limit the production to 5 years and see what the judge says.
