You are in the US? Yes. They have to give you a copy of your medical record or the part you want. The only exception to this would be mental health related records that the doctor may determine that it would be detrimental to you having and adoption/ birth records that reveal the parent or adoptive parents identity.

They may ask you to pay for them but many doctors offices don't. I wouldn't mention that the doc hasn't gone over them with you or any of that. Just call and ask to speak to the medical records clerk about getting a copy.

WISH ME LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I'm going to call this afternoon!

In the meantime, start the diet.  No need to wait.

I checked into this.  While they are required to give you copies of your records, there isn't a time limit and you might end up waiting a month anyway.  It might work better to work around the people who don't want to give you the results by asking the facility directly.  Also, if you ask them to be sent to your primary care doctor (if that one is cooperative), rather than giving them to you directly, they may be more compliant.
