This is completely improper conduct. I think you should consider filing a complaint against him with the Office of Professional Medical Conduct.

Under Federal law (and no doubt California law) you have a right to your medical records. You need to hire an attorney immediately
I am not an expert in California Law, but in New York, if there is an apparent basis for a medical malpractice claim, and the doctor has refused to turn over the records, a case can be started to protect the statute of limitations without them. An attorney can involve the court and make a motion to compel production of the records.
You should hire an attorney immediately to pursue this and protect your statute of limitations, which may be near expiration.See question

You need to speak with an attorney from your state as to the operation of statute of limitations under these circumstances. I would do this immediately as time may be of the essence.See question
