I am getting contradictory information on who I have to talk to on making corrections to my medical record, and no explanation on an organizational policy on how to make this kind of correction.
You can ask a doctor to correct, and it is up to the doctor whether he/she wants to or not.

Since the doctors have certain legal duties to call it as they see in on the medical records, they have a certain amount of discretion in the matter.
