Can I switch my pediatrician without having shot records with me at that time?

I moved a great deal away from my kids dr and I have a new dr that I have in mind whose closer to me. Can I switch my kids to the new doctor and get the paperwork transferred?

  • Yep they will ask you for a release paper so that they can get the other records. you don't have to bring them with you.
