I work for a company and see a Doctor within the company. I have a ruptured disc and require surgery and my boss went and asked my dotor my prognosis. Is that legal?

Response from Ms. Breuer

Prognosis? Yes. Diagnosis? No. Prognosis just asks how long the doc thinks you'll be out and how likely the surgery is to succeed. Is this question in any way HIV-related?
