are you asking about keeping secrets about patients?

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Urologist: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

yes. all medical staff in the US are legally required to keep patient information confidential (secret) under the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) law passed in 1996. There are monetary fines for disclosing patient information without their written consent.

I've had info got out about me somehow don't know how told. It came from the er
Urologist: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

Sorry to hear that. I can understand how that would be very frustrating.

I would talk to the hospital then. They would have someone in administration that would follow up on that. With electronic Medical records, they can easily see who accessed your medical records and if they had a reason to that was directly related to your medical care.

It was to make fun and make a joke of me
Urologist: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

sorry to hear. I think your best course of action is to contact the patient services department at the hospital and they can follow up and investigate your complaint?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
