Expert:  INFOLAWYER replied 8 years ago.
A doctor is not required to continue to treat a patient but would notify the patient of this decision so he or she may obtain other medical help.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
We live in Florida, is there a time frame for dropping a patient, such as a 30 day notice.
Expert:  INFOLAWYER replied 8 years ago.
There is no time frame. The doctor needs to facilitate transition to another doctor if in the middle of treatment.
