Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

You can find some detailed information regarding what your rights are in our Settlement.Org What are my rights as a patient? article.

Here is an excerpt,

If a health care professional violates your rights, you can complain to the appropriate regulatory organization. For example, if your doctor refuses to give you your medical records, you can complain to the Information and Privacy Commissioner.



I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
