Should Patients Read Doctor’s Notes? Wrong Question.

“When you have a doctor’s appointment, and she makes some notes and later formalizes them for your medical record, would you like read them? There’s been debate over the years about whether patients should read the notes that doctors write about them and their health issues — in academic circles, in a great Seinfeld episode where Elaine’s dermatologist won’t let her see what he wrote about her, and more recently in a New York Times piece that discusses the promising OpenNotes project. I think this is the wrong question. Instead, you should walk into your doctor’s office with a video camera or tape recorder. More on that in a moment.”
