Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of medico-legal experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
Here are some avenues of potential recourse for you under the circumstances:
- You can sue the physician for medical malpractice if you feel comfortable in your ability to show that his termination of relationship placed you at risk and that he did nothing to mitigate that risk and did not attempt to place you with a suitable replacement (you can actually sue the system, physician and assistant all in one suit); and
- You can file a complaint with your state's board of medical licensing against the physician for unprofessional and perhaps unethical treatment...if they find in your favor, they can suspend his license to practice.
Those are basically the only two viable courses of action for you moving forward on this issue.
