When I graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College and earned my Doctorate Degree, one of the things I had learned was the importance of keeping everything the patient told me completely confidential.
(Confidential – to be kept private, not shared, not discussed with anyone else, not revealed without direct instruction from the patient.)
I still take that responsibility very seriously. Nothing you say to me during a treatment session will ever be repeated outside that door, without your direct instructions.
But over the past 20 years, I have seen a loss of expectation for privacy in our health records.
Now, the intimate details of our lives, illnesses, sufferings, and frailties are connected with our financial records and distributed across the globe. To potential employers, future spouse, colleges, ex-wives, police, lawyers, salesmen, anyone interested in us.
Call me old fashioned, but I will not participate in this attack on your privacy. If you trust me as your doctor, I will keep records in a hand written format. Everything stays confidential and between you and me. Nothing leaves my files except directly to you. (or your next of kin)
So if you have a bad back, but don’t want your employer to know. Get in here.
If you need a safe ear to share your troubles, I promise to keep it confidential. (Unless you tell me your an axe murderer)
If something is going on with your kid, and you are afraid it might affect his chances for a scholarship, I can help.
There are so many situations the details of your health condition should be private, I am an oasis of privacy.
