More details to this question:
I am seeing 2 new doctors and I want all of my medical records. I want to get them, not my doctors. After I review them then I will turn them over to my doctors.

You can request your records directly from your medical providers.

Send a written request and they are required to provide them, with a reasonablecharge for copying.

They cannot be released without your consent to any other party under HIPPA, with limited exceptions.
