Doctor's and Privacy Laws
Does anyone know if a doctor's office (the nurse, actually) calls someone back and they have to leave a voice mail, are they instructed to only leave the basics (i.e., returning the call, name, number, etc.)?
the reason I'm asking is because I sent a note with a copy of an ultrasound report to a gyno I went to a few years back, asking for her opinion about the report - I also mentioned I'd seen one of her colleagues last week and that this other doctor wasn't at all concerned by the report findings, but I wanted her opinion also. I mailed the note the other day, and tonight when I got home from running around, the nurse left a voice mail saying the doctor wanted her to call me to follow up about my letter, and that they are in tomorrow from 9 to 5.
Of course my anxiety kicks in and I wonder, "did she not leave the doctor's opinion because it's a negative opinion"? I'm glad I will know tomorrow morning when I call, but I can't help to wonder why she didn't leave a more specific voice mail unless she's not supposed to either way (negative or positive) for privacy reasons.
Any thoughts would be great!
