  • Ask for a copy of it from your doctor and take it to the specialist yourself. Good luck.

  • i would drive down there and get the paperwork and then personally hand deliver it to them your daughters records are for you to have and it would be a bad idea to make a copy of them

  • I tried the fax thing from one doctor to another and it never happened. So what I did was I went to the doctors office and told them that I am here for my sons paperwork,it was supposed to have been faxed weeks ago! I would sound really mad too!!! Then after I got the paperwork I would say thanks for nothing!!! I think they tell parents that they will fax the required paperwork,prescription request etc,,to get us to shut up and go away!!! Oh yeah,one more thing,they will not apologize for their screw up either!

  • See about speaking with the office manager. Ask when and what number they faxed it too. (I once got a fax from a hospital on my home fax.)


    Have you thought about changing your PCP?

  • You can go to the office and get the information the specialist needs. You can file a complaint with your insurance company and with the state medical board or if it is a clinic that is associated with a hospital, you file a complaint with the clinic administrator or hospital administrator.
