Thank you for using JustAnswer!
Yes, it is legal for a physician to decide that s/he is no longer going to treat a patient. It's also legal for a hospital department to decide that they are no longer going to treat a patient.
In other words, a patient does not have an unqualified legal right to be treated by the doctor(s) of their choice.
Good luck and best wishes for better days ahead. I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
All of the questions i had were not answered...
I.e., releasing medical regards XXXXX XXXXX signed release or checked ID
psychiatric profiling and rights within the ADA
Can you please reread my original questions, they were more than just about being fired by a physician?
Does someone who has a history of psychiatric conditions such as depression/PTSD/OCD have rights under the ADA against being "profiled" by a physician?
Based upon the facts you've described, "no."
is this a HIPPA violation?
Because the records were released to you and not released to someone else, "no" there was not a violation.
