no he did not.
I do not have a contract with him, and I do not have info. on other patients. I can say that in the begining of this relationship my husband, Robert, had some stressors that we were working thorough and that we did discuss with this MD. I feel that the MD treated Robert in an accute setting and did a good job. Our stressors not only related to elderly family members, but we had great news about our youngest son who would be married in 6 months, and then a large and lenghtly dental procedure all came at the same time. We worked through the negative stressors and feel that we came out on top. At this point I dont feel that this demand is warranted and only makes any further relationship and pain control better. This MD was hired for pain management not psychological help. If he discharges Robert, Robert will be in serious physical trouble.
What I would like to see happen is to continue in his practice for a while longer until either the relationship improves or we find another professional. I put this out to the MD and am waiting for an answer.
If we are unable to come to a resolution, do I have any recourse for enduring this much stress?
