Two studies in the Annals of Internal Medicine say most patients want to see those notes.
Advocates of open-access medical records say, it is not only a patient's right, but will help boost the quality of care as well.
But doctors who were not part of the project felt it would cost them a lot of time answering patients questions . They were also concerned about having to censor what they wrote.
Researchers involved in the study have started "Open-Notes," a system that gives patients an online portal to their doctor's comments.
