Not unless you tell them if you don't give this new doctor permission to get the old records. If for some ODD reason they actually do proper testing for herpes, then yes it will show up. I have had new doctors who didn't know until they tested or got my permissions to get my old records, I have 22 actual doctors of all types some specialist and all different specialties. Why would you not want this doctor to know your full health status? Just asking ;)

Oh and just by visual inspection, I do not believe she will know if your visit is not for a herpes related issue, she doesn't need to know. :)

I haven't had a reason to see my dermatologist since 2009 so when I made an appointment they said I needed to fill out new patient forums again. The appointment is herpes unrelated. I have already been diagnosed with HSV2 swab test though so I assume now it will show up?

Ohhh I thought any doctor had access to all my medical history. I have to fill out a Patient Registration Form and Dermatology Medical History Form.

I thought the medical history form gave them access to all of my history.

Nope it doesnt in my State, only what you allow them to have from primary care to Oncologist to Neurologist, different doctors have different info about you
