So, we went to see the pediatric gi today to get C's results (Marsh 3a), and when I asked if I could get a copy of the results she said that I would have to go through the medical records department to get a copy of them because they are only put into his file, not given out. Is this common practice? I have read that I should be getting a copy for my own personal records. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Thanks :)

I'm sure it depends on each hospitals procedure. I get copies of all blood work when we are there or they send it to me. Again, that's at our hospital.

It depends what kind of facility your GI's office is located in.  If he is within an institution that maintains an overall file on a patient (i.e., from other doctors, hospitalization, lab work, etc.), then the medical records department would be the place to request the copy.  If the doctor maintains an individual office and billing, then he should give you the information.
