How can I get a copy of my medical record?

Posted October 1, 2020

Provide your physician with a written request, then follow-up to ensure they received your request. Some medical offices may ask you to fill out a form.

If your physician is no longer practising, check with the clinic where they worked, as your medical record may still be on file.

If you are seeking your medical record from a hospital or government facility, you will have to contact the facility, not your physician.
