I was treated back in 2010 in the Nashville area by an outpatient/private psychiatric doctor. That doctor is now refusing to release my psych records to me. Everything and anything pretty much.
What can I do, outside of a lawsuit, to get him to release the records?
> I think he's refusing because he wrote down that I had used cocaine even though i have never used cocaine, there is no proof, and the social security admin used that information to deny my SSDI claim at the ALJ level. > The ALJ said that 'substance abuse issues' caused my mental illness. And that Dr. was asked atleast 8 months AFTER he wrote that to remove it and he REFUSED. > I eventually changed psych Drs. > All other psych Drs (5 yrs previous and 3 yrs after) never put anything about cocaine in my records. Urgent need.
