I am a Healthcare Professional that has to uphold patient confidentiality exactly as a Physician must. The California Acupuncture board mandates that all medical records are COMPLETELY confidential and that they cannot be released to ANYONE, even the police, an attorney, or your insurance company EVER unless by a court order. If patient confidentiality is not upheld, I could lose my license. That would be a waste of hundreds of thousands spent on schooling for 5 years and the potential earnings lost in the future. More so, it would be a huge ethical violation; It will not ever happen.
