Simply Dr. Lin is a great and caring physician. He is kind and thorough. I am disappointed in one aspect of the Kadlec Care team. This is your records department. In May I had a exam in Denver, CO at National Jewish Hospital over a potential respiratory disorder. I tried two times to get my Kadlec medical records sent to my Denver doctor. I filled out the form two months prior to my appointment, my doctors office sent it to Kadlec Records to be processed all per hospital policy. After 30days I called the Records Department to see if they had sent the records. They said their system does not have a function that allows them to know if they have mailed the records or not. I was at best disappointed and surprised that such a high technology hospital had such an out-of-date system. I then contacted my doctors office and they had my signed release form that they had faxed to records and I asked them to send it again. They said they did. Well, when I get to Denver, what do I find. My doctor had not received any of my Kadlec records. None... Nothing! One test results was very important, my heart echo cardiogram was not there for my Doctor to see. My doctor said she would contact Kadlec records and get the information. Well when I get my final report from Denver, it is clear that she never received the records. During my appointment with Dr. Lin I told this tale to his nurse and to him. Their response was well, we don't really have any control over the Records Department. I guess I am left wondering who does! I do not mind a single mistake/oversight. But...when it has to do with my health I get a little bent when it is not just one it is three. More than that, my own doctor has not control over my records set. That is simply unacceptable. I was a Quality Assurance manager on the Hanford Nuclear Site for over 30 years. I understand to importance of accuracy and attention to detail. If the records people had a an issue with the request they should have contacted me. They simply did not. Failure!
