Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I understand what you've written, but remain unsure to the answer of my question. Can my physician terminate his services, based on the information Ive provided?
"To avoid claims of abandonment,physicians are required to provide some notice (typically 30 days), during which the doctor would be required to provide treatment of any emergency until the patient was able to transfer their records to another physician."
--Does this mean if I can't find another physician he will have to continue treating me?
Other reasons to fire a patient would include failure to pay bills or aggressive, violent or threatening behavior. -- Does this mean if these conditions haven't existed, that he cannot fire me?
Thanks for any clarification.
