Perhaps the first chart was his property from before the point in time when Dr Y joined his practice. The second chart might be records produced during their partnership, which makes them belong to the corporation.
I agree with what others have said--you can request a copy from Dr. Y.
You can call the licensing board (medical) and ask them what you can do.
But I don't think that Dr. Y or his lawyers would put your records in harms way. They probably are secure, just not accepssible to Dr. X until they settle. However, I believe you should be entitled to an assurance that your records are being held securely and in confidence as expected in your work with Dr. X., and for an explanation of what you can expect to happen in this process. You can write to Dr. Y to request this, request a copy, and request a copy be sent to Dr. X. If they refuse to send to Dr. X, you can write back saying you beleive they are impeding your ability to obtain the care you need, as Dr. X needs the records to treat you.
