In brief: Ask your doctor
Usually your doctor provides information about the process of this in his/her practice, when you become a patient.
In general, you can receive a copy of your record by requesting it in writing. Depending on the type of doctor and the problems you've been experiencing/treated for, your doctor may want to go over this with you in person. S/he decides about this by considering your best interests.
