This JAMA article says physicians must get used to the idea that patients may be recording each encounter.

Sounds scary, but the authors close their essay with:

”Unless federal or state laws change, physicians should be aware of the possibility that their conversations with patients may be recorded. If physicians embrace this possibility, establish good relationships with their patients, provide compassionate and competent care, and communicate effectively and professionally, the motives of patients and families in recording visits will be irrelevant.”
