Each time you go to the doctor, your doctor takes notes about your visit for your medical records. These records contain basic information like your name and date or birth. They also include medical test results, treatments, medicines and allergies.

Your doctor may keep your records electronically or in a paper chart, but no matter what form your medical records are kept in, you have the right to see and have copies of them.
