Why You Have to Keep a Copy of Your Medical Records
Your doctor has a copy of your medical records—but do you have a personal copy of your medical history? Probably not. Like most people, you may feel that leaving your health records with your doctor is the safest and best place for them to be.
But if you change doctors, move to a different city, get sick while traveling, or if you find yourself heading unexpectedly to the ER at the hospital, having your medical records with you could significantly boost your chances of getting the right care quickly.
