    I requested my medical record from dentist long time ago after his failed treatment. Even 60 days of limit given by law is passed. So far I got incomplete and inconsistent medical record from him. I requested remaining critical medical records(like X-RAY) by phone and email. So far no answer. So how to get my complete record?

    Have you tried asking your insurance carrier to request the records?

    Or, have you tired getting another dentist to request your records?

    You'll never prove that what he has given you is less than complete, either.

    It'll be his word against yours.

    That, and x-rays etc., actually belong to the provider not the patient. OP, have you offered to pay for a copy?

    In California you have to write a letter and make the request in writing and specifically ask. Document - Document - Document and keep a records of day, time and who you talked to and what was said. They are not suppose to refuse you. Doctors & hospitals tend to want WHY you want them and if they get just a little sniff something is wrong then they alter them and clean them up, lose them, misplace them, their in archives and can't find them, etc. Doctors have a brotherhood and tend to lie and cover for each other. I'd be careful in asking another doctor to ask for them. You have to be careful in how you get them.

    Offer to pay for a copy of the x-rays and you may also have to pay for any copy costs. Ask how much and be prepared.

    You own the records. Just ask the hospital or provider.

    Wrong.

    The records actually belong to the provider.
