Read all my office visit records from my PM

It was sad reliving all the ups and downs, but one thing is consistent. We've tried a lot of stuff and my doc sure has faith in me

I know my medical records are not a pleasant nor light read. My chart gets very thick and heavy and all my doctors have to weed it out periodically. Thankfully, many medical offices are automating charts as my primary doctor's office is. I think that is very efficient.

Throughout my 30 year IT career I heard the phrase "paperless" so many times. Not sure if we will every get there, but we are coming closer.

It is both rewarding and frustrating to see all the treatments we have tried.

Continuing to pray for you, Tim.

Have a blessed and Fantastic Friday to all members of the WebMD Back Pain Community.

I've only been with this PM for a few years max. They just gave the office notes. At my old PM I was on volume III of my notes.

To your point about paperless. Printer sales are still strong as so many people print there emails to save them!
