Just curious because I'd really like to have them for myself. What's the easiest way to go about getting all of my medical records? Should I contact each of my doctors or my insurance company? Thanks!

All of my husbands appointments were through the University of MN Hospital. I went to the business office and requested all his records. I was able to get everything, even his PET scan on CD. It was quite a stack of papers and very interesting reading for me.
