Those were the only records that were necessary for me to transfer, so I was able to avoid the time they would drag it out for and the fee. It's surprising how much faster a patient can get their own records when they don't mention leaving the office compared to when you want the records transferred to a new doctor. They even want the request in writing. I didn't have to do any of that.

They told me to send a fax request and then pick them up. I don't think I have to pay a fee.
