94. A physician must, promptly and within not more than 20 days of its receipt, respond to any request made by his patient 14 years of age or older to examine or obtain a copy of documents concerning him in any record established in his respect.
Despite the foregoing, a physician may temporarily deny access if the physician is of the opinion that communicating the record or a part thereof would cause serious harm to the patient’s health. In that case, the physician determines the time the record or part thereof to which access is denied may be communicated to the patient and so informs the patient.
A physician must obtain the consent of a minor 14 years of age or older before communicating to the minor’s parent or tutor health information connected with care to which the minor may give his or her consent alone.
