Your experience would seal the deal for me - there's no way I could continue to work with someone who breached my trust in such a dramatic way.

If it's any consolation, I think medical personnel are not allowed to look at other people's files, except in connection with treatment. I know of an instance where I live where a doctor was suspended for reading the medical record of someone who was then just a friend to her. Although I realize that this is absolutely not going reassure you - you're probably going to wander around for awhile wondering whether people you see know about your medical history.

I think I would have a need to confront this doctor about what he's done, even just as a prelude to terminating him. Maybe there's a way some of this material can be deleted.

I also think it's very difficult to read the clinical language that docs use to describe us. I know when I switched psychiatrists after the retirement of my first pdoc, I was furious when I read the medical recap letter he wrote to my new psychiatrist. I'm sure he thought he was just being dry and clinical; I thought he was being insensitive and that some of the judgements I read into what he wrote were simply unfair and baseless.

Please let us know what you decide to do.
