Has anyone had a problem getting medical records or psychiatric reports on their difficult child? The first outpatient evaluation was no problem for me. I also have full records of another evaluation from a different psychiatrist. I went out of my way to get full medical records transferred to the latest psychiatrist and therapist from the psychiatric hospital. I then decided I should have a copy. At first the therapist said he would have no problem sharing those records with me so I would not have to put in another request and wait many more weeks to get it. Then, he changed his mind and told me that the psychiatric hospital psychiatrist was the one to decide what records parents got, and that often they did not release everything to the parents. Given that, he decided not to share his copy with me. I put in my request again to the psychiatric hospital for my own records, but now I am wondering why information would be withheld from a parent? Shouldn't a parent be part of the team, and isn't that information important to know? It irks me that I might get an incomplete copy for my records, but the psychiatrist and therapist have additional information that is being withheld and kept a secret from me. How can that be productive?
