Re: hippa violations
if your dr read the hippa act instead of hearsay they would know Hippa does not apply to jobs. it applies to 3rd parties wanting to inquire about your health conditions. not saying tdcj is above the law but you HCPS does not need to go into full detail of your condition. just a simple medical fact. i have my dr write was seen for whatever. ie high blood pressure or chronic pain care just something simple like a symptom and a body part. example anal itch they have to accept that. i can see your dr refusing to do this but i have not met one yet that wont comply after a simple explination. its not the end of the world.
