HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard, since the professional you requested is not available at this time.Do you have such a contract restriction?When you say the patients are being given an option to be seen - by who and who is giving the option, please?
Thank you for the clarification. I did not see where you stated the healthcare providers are giving the option. I apologize if I missed it somehow.I fully understand your position is being terminated and generally it is a cost saving measure.And I am fully familiar with non competes.I appreciate you taking the time to make further statement for my clarification as that provides me the best tool to provide you the information you need.Please remember, I can only answer what you ask and this appears to be the question in the body of your fact statement: "I must find ways to market myself, but also must ensure that I do not violate any contract clauses."I suggest, that you can certainly run ads in your local papers where you will be relocating. You may be under restriction to not solicit your current patients, but that does not preclude you from advertising your new location and they can find you. So once you get in place with a new physician, ask them to help you to advertise your new location. There is nothing in violation of your restrictions in that way.I also suggest, that you can talk to your current employer and request that once you are established if your patients ask about you that they will tell them you were laid off due to costs and you are located with another physician. Of course, they don't have to do that. But it would be a generous gesture since they are laying you off.Please let me know if you have other questions in this regard. Keep in mind, I can only answer and provide information for what you ask. I do not know what you need to know, unless you tell me. Please rate positive as this is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
