Can my doctor share my failed UA info from pain management with new doctors without my permission? I hardly take any pills and they say I failed and I am no longer going to be seen but I'm concerned they will share these results with any new doctor I try to see as well.
They could if your new doctor asks for your previous records and you give permission to get them. Most pain docs will want the previous doctors records and may choose not to see you if you dont give permission for your current doc to send records. You will be in a "catch 22" and damned if you do and damned if you dont. A new doctor will likely want a urine specimen, as well, before they prescribe for you in any case. Did they tell you why you failed? Did it show you had something not prescribed or was it negative for any medication at all? If you dont take your pain pills every day and havent taken them for a few days prior to your urine specimen it wont show anything in your system which raises a red flag and makes the doctor think you are diverting them somewhere else. You should always be sure that you have taken a pill the day of your appointment if they are doing urine drug screens so it shows positive for the prescribed drug.
