Update: I just called the office and they are going to make sure of what was done/sent and call me back. Either way, they do not send the psychotherapy notes (no matter what). Only the progress notes are sent, however, some personal information such as "arguing with child/husband" or something like that could be included. The files are separated by section, but information is kept in the same physical file.
Apparently they are as concerned as I am about releasing information to anyone. I actually remember the first meeting I had with him that we discussed releasing information and he was against it almost completely except under direct court order.
I'll be waiting on the call for verification, but I feel sure they didn't release anything controversial or detrimental. I can honestly say that this Dr's office is the most private of any I have ever seen. There are only two Dr's and there are separate waiting rooms to prevent violation of patient confidentiality. There is also virtually no wait to see the Dr because they only schedule one patient at a time with about 10 minutes between visits (I guess for making notes).
