I went to the emergency room in March thinking I had Covid-19 and since I am young and healthy the doctors labeled me as having a panic attack and assumed I was on something and so they drew blood for a blood test and quickly found out I was on nothing and they gave me some prescription for coughing and the cold and sent me on my way. It turns out one of the emergency room doctors that looked at my blood sample goes to the same religious facility as me and he told everyone there about what had happened and people have been treating me significantly different and it wasn't until someone revealed that the doctor told everyone this. My question is, shouldn't this be a violation of hipaa? I thought doctors aren't supposed to share any sort of medical information with anyone?
