Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello, I am here for you and am sorry to hear about the problems with this new physician. Make an appt with the clinic's Chief of Staff and explain the situation to him/her. You may not be the only patient having issues with this particular Dr. Ask that he be taken off your case. You could file a complaint/report him to your state's Medical Board, but I doubt that will get you very far. A restraining order would not be issued unless he is following you outside of the hospital. The best way to get relief from the situation is to stay within the hospital staff and report the situation to his supervisor, the Chief of Staff. I hope this answers your question, dear.

Good luck with this and take care, Eleanor
We have reported him to the clinics chief of staff and she is very upset that her orignal orders about "limited" contact" were ignored. We feel confident that there will be some resolution to the problem by the time of my next appt. I really enjoy and feel comfortable with the resident I talk with & that is hard for me, to develop trust. It is only the over sight Dr. that causes problems, so if the problem can be minimized with out a lot of other changes this would be wonderful. Thank you for your response & advice. You have kept my inital emotional reponse in check & helped prevent me from possibly going to far & doing damage that would end up poorly for me as well.
