My mother stopped seeing a doctor about a year ago. She has been without a PCP. She just procured a new one and was asked to get her medical records. Her old doctors office told me today that those records will include 2 years worth of documents ( from today ) so essentially i years worth of documents. She was with that doctor for 5 years.
Is it not the law that doctors have to keep records for 7 years? Is it also not the law that they need release those documents? What can I do to pursue this and make sure she is able to get the full breadth of medical history
