Hey all Canadians.
I was just reading another post where someone suggested obtaining a copy of all tests. '
Can we do the same in Canada? what are our rights when it comes to our charts. I've had the experience of a GI not telling me I had crohns disease until 2 years after he'd done the colonoscopy and other tests. He shared that info with my family DR. ....and they both decided I had enough on my plate so they would tell me later. I don't know how legal that was....I 'm from a teeny-tiny little town , where the doctors have brought most of the town's population into the world. '
But it has made me a bit weary , when a doctor now, tells me everything is fine....Do I have the right to look at my chart?
