How can I get access to my medical records?

During the premature birth of my son it was discovered that my kidneys were not filtering. I was at a teaching hospital and although the doctor was supposed to refer me to a kidney specialist the referral never got sent. There was also nothing about any of the tests or problems in my discharge papers. My primary doctor told me that they will not do any of the tests or give me a referral until I have the records proving there’s a problem. I have been struggling for the past 5 months to get a copy of my records.
