After that, or maybe along with it I don't recall, Wash U sent me a medical authorization to transfer all my records to Columbia.

Not sure if there was a specific reason I got the letter as opposed to others, but I did get a letter. I did not have a surgery scheduled, and had just seen Dr. Lenke the previous month for the first time if that matters.
Kudos to Wash U for being honest and allowing you to make the decision based on all the facts. Very different from when Dr. Betz left Shriners (see my post above). They also did not automatically send me the forms to transfer my son's medical records. I had to request it.
