NY State police get reports from Doctors..

Great way to dissuade people from getting help they may need. Isn't it great the State knows better than the people, so much so that what is reported on you, is secret from you !!

Capanna’s client, Nicholas S. Castellano, submitted the FOIL. “To learn that more than 85,000 reports were secretly made by doctors against their New York patients since 2013 puts Governor Cuomo at the top of the list previously headed up by Joe McCarthy. This secret reporting program puts the NYS Police in every examination room in the state. Make no mistake about it.”

Of those reported to NYS, only a handful of handgun license holders have been notified of the secret reports, during court cases. There is no notification requirement as part of MHL §9.46. The report is not part of patient medical records. And, the state agencies in possession of the reports refuse to release them even to the individual.
