| | My dentist refused to forward my Xray film.
since my dentist did not do a good job on my dental cleaning (apparently she left many stains there), I decided to change to another dentist. But the old dentist refused to transfer my Xray films to the new dentist. She asked me to pay $25 to get the X-Ray copy. I would like to know whether the dentist is allowed to do so legally according to New York State Regulation (I live in Long Island, NY). Also, can I inform the insurance company to refuse to pay the dentist the cleaning cost (believe me, she did really a bad job)?
Thank you very much for any tips in advance.
