HIPPA regulations state that your doctor may not, under any circumstances, release any medical information to anybody other than the patient without your consent first. you would have to sign a waiver to cover the doctor's ass, u know what i mean? and i think you would need to sign a waiver each and every time your medical records were disclosed to a 3rd party. violation of HIPPA means a 100,000 dollar fine for whoever did it--and the doctor can be held liable personally as well. HIPPA protects you fully.

Had the lady cared, she could have filed a complaint with HIPPA--ultimately filing a lawsuit. and she would have won the case because HIPPA don't fuck around.
hope that helps.
Could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man?
