I would like to ask someone who lives in Michigan and works in a medical office about records release laws.  Please PM me as I would like to keep the details private.  Thank you in advance.

I do not live in MI anymore or in the health field currently, but most states are the same.   They are not allowed to release your medical info to ANYONE without your permission.  You actually have to sign a release form (including to your insurance company).

You should be able to call any doctors office in your state and ask someone more specific questions.
