handwritten medical records hard to read?

After experiencing an extremely nasty psychiatrist I just need to get my medical records per the request to my insurance to get partial reimbursement for the claim.

And after half years back and force phone calls and messages and mails emails, finally I got a copy of crappy handwritten "notes". I don't know if it can be called "medical records" because it's really some scribble! And from my rough reading it's full of mistakes, misinterpretations, wrong private details and I also noticed it was tailored to cut off some content and emphasis some other, on purpose obviously. And the final diagnosis is ridiculously stigmatizing which is why I left this practice and moved on to some better real doctors and found out my real medical problem. This is just by rough reading, the handwriting is very hard to read that I can't recognize all the bullshit so to possibly correct them. And the nasty doctor told me he can't spend any more time on this when I asked him.
What should I do now? I need to submit medical records for insurance claim to reimburse the pretty penny wasted on this d!@#@$#bag, but I'm so sick and tired of dealing with this A#$#@%!shole. Can I just suck it up, if it doesn't matter too much to submit this shit "notes" full of misinformation and personal details to my insurance? I have newer claims with newer diagnosis after this whole shit of misdiagnosis. What's the worst consequence?
Thanks very much.
