Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
HelloMy name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to discussing this and providing you information in this regard.I suggest only the attorney who signed the Subpoena can release you and assign another date.I suggest you have to call her and tell her that you are having a pre planned surgery and that you can provide a Doctors letter attesting that you are having surgery. You will need to request that she release you from this date and reschedule. Or perhaps ask her if the deposition can be done at your home or in your hospital room if you are still going to be hospitalized at that time.I suggest you also tell her that you need to have release forms in order to provide patient confidential records. And that you will be contacting your patient in that regard. It is up to you to get the written release form. If you do not get released from the Subponea and reschedule the date then she can have you arrested and you don't want that.
I hope that this information is helpful. If you need further information, please just send me a reply asking for clarification. After that, I hope you will enter a positive rating so that I will be credited for assisting you. Thanks again for using this service. Your business is appreciated.
I doubt that the attorney will release me from the subpoena. And the surgery is removing a tumor from my neck and jaw.....may not even be able to talk without difficulty....won't know until surgery is completed. That will leave one day to address this if I am unable to attend. I know about confidentiality have never gotten a records subpoena with out attached releases. Will send her a letter requesting releases.
