I just called to get a copy of my port removal for insurance and they faxed it to me. Never asked for any identifying information except my name and the date I was there. When she faxed it to me, my diagnosis was wrong!! Said I had breast cancer but I actually had lymphoma. Had my past history as chemotherapy due to breast cancer. When I called back to make the correction, they were rude that I pointed out his mistake. Told me to call back the next day for the corrected copy!
