    B.According to the AMA’s Council on Ethical and Judicial
    Affairs, the purpose of a physician’s ethical duty to maintain
    patient confidentiality is to allow the patient to feel free to
    make a full and frank disclosure of information to the physician,
    knowing that the physician will protect the confidential
    nature of the information disclosed. Full disclosure gives the
    physician information to diagnose conditions properly and to
    treat the patient appropriately.
