"Um Yeah This Is He...?"

My doctor so far is reasonable to deal with, but I can't get over HIPAA and office confidentiality rules that allow an office worker to tell me the results of all my blood work over the phone (including, say, an HIV test) after verifying my identity by having me answer "yes" to the question whether I am Fabian, yet require me to fax in a release form when I actually would like a copy.

I was told all returned lab results are ok, I just want to know how ok they are.
