  We do NOT re-release any information; we only send out copies of
  documentation that originated due to patient care rendered in our
  facilities.  Copies from other health care providers are filed in a separate
  section of the record, under a "Correspondence" divider.  Printed
  instructions on that divider warn that those copies may NOT be redisclosed. 
  The patient in your example should be directed to the physician's office in
  Baltimore where the care was originally rendered.
  Hope this helps!
