Benefits of viewing your own medical records
Reviewing your medical history can help you make important choices regarding
future healthcare. If you move frequently, or often visit numerous doctors,

their treatments and advice. Additionally, you will have a better idea
of your physical strengths and weaknesses, and can address with your physician
anything you find concerning on your record.
