    I think there might be a loophole though that insurance companies may be able to look at records..if he puts down usage it may effect you...Now Im not saying that for sure but I heard that some time back.


    Other than that no,,its healthy to let your doc know..especially for blood work and stuff...best to stay healthy.

    i dont think they could say anything to your parents. they told my parents about something that i was suppose to get done and i asked they doctor if he is legally allowed to say that to them without asking me and he almost crapped his pants

    Im really big on being honest with your doctor...Im very fortunate to have a relationship with 3-4 doctors who I can be totally honest with and they help me stay on top of things....They dont always agree with what I do, but they know if Im gonna compete, it's just part of the sport.

    If you are over 18, the doctor can't release any information without your permission. However, your insurance company may have had you sign something that gives them permission, or they may say refusal to let them see your records, or get information about your care, allows them to deny payment or coverage. In general, unless they suspect something, or your doctor is turning in bizarre charges, they are unlikely to want to see records.

    First if your under 18 i would not use steroids . But the doctor would probably tell your parents if you told him. what would you do sue him for informing your parents who have to give prmission for any treatment to you. Good luck with that. Besides if something happend to you heath wise after you told him your parents would want to sue him for not saying something. I mean if you got ill youll probably be telling them everything like "the doc knew i thought i was okay!"

    Patient-Doctor confidentiality. It's a rule.

    Not just a rule. It's against the law for him to tell anyone that you don't give him permission to tell. He/She could lose their license to practice medicine for it...

    If they can do this for beer, I wouldn’t disclose anything!!!




    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP)
    A state appeals court has rejected
    an appeal from a Lebanon man whose
    driver's license was revoked after
    he told doctors he drank more than a six-pack of beer a day.

    A three-judge Commonwealth Court panel
    says the Pennsylvania Department of
    Transportation was justified in recalling
    the license of Keith Emerich in May 2004
    based on the judgment of hospital doctors
    who treated him for an irregular heartbeat
    several months earlier.

    But the panel overturned the trial judge's
    order that PennDOT issue Emerich a restricted
    license requiring an ignition-interlock
    device that would prevent him from drinking
    and driving. The panel says the judge exceeded
    his authority and that PennDOT alone
    decides whether such devices should be required.

    Under a law that dates to the 1960s, doctors
    in Pennsylvania must report any physical or
    mental impairments in patients over 15
    years old that could compromise their ability to drive safely

    There is no external info regarding this situation. With more information im sure we would see an obvious reason for the breach of confidentiality. Otherwise the doctor would run the risk of losing his license.
