Know your diagnoses?

My psychologist has not told me any diagnoses, nor has he offered to (though I did get a list of my "rights" at the beginning, which stated my right to view my records). Is this normal, or do most come right out and tell you? Do they ever have a problem with a request to view your records (regarless of whether they let you view them, do they oppose it or advise against it?). I am curious to see when my psychologist thinks about me.

Also, he took some notes during my initial consultation, but since then, he has not written anything down while I was there. Is THIS normal? I assume he writes things down after I leave (especially since he actually remembers a lot from week to week), but I know he sometimes has back-to-back appointments and can't write it down immediately afterwards.
