Is our family doctor obligated to tell my husband that I have herpes?
My doctor knows that I have herpes. He is also my husbands primary care physician. Is the doctor obligated to tell my husband? Or would that be against rules to disclose my personal medical information to my husband? We practice safe sex and he hasn't contracted in the time that I've had it (8 years).
Thanks in advance for your advice!

actually it's a blatant HIPAA violation if your provider mentions it to your husband. Even though he is your spouse he has no access to your medical information without your permission.

have you not told your husband?  if so, why not?
