IS IT Legal,,,,,,,

I recently worked for a pain doctor,small clinic which frankly would not of passed a dea inspection had not of been for me taking over almost two years ago, None the less I was a patient before I became employee. My Husband and son as well worked for this Dr. and my husbnad at this Drs request switched to him for his pain management as well. Recently I was fired from my job by the person lower than me on the totem pole a feat this distant relative of the Dr was vying for and finally accomplished I know this because the Drs own son warned me weeks ago . Anyway  heres the deal, The Dr was horrid to me two days in a row  he came into my office thought i was cleaning out the desk cause Id quit  I was cleaning it looking for something not to quit. anyway We parted ways at 7 pm as emplyee employer and that was last contact I had with him.  His MO is to have everyone else do his dirty work. Now he is stating he has dropped myself who runs out of medicines on Friday which I truly need I haSeMedical Services e failed surgery syndrome,  osteomylitis which is in remission, Hep C, Rheumtiod Arthritis, Deg Disc Disease.. My Husbands case is worse hes suffering from 3rd degree burns over half of his chest and skin grafts the size of his chest and front of thigh, three neck failed surgerys and two back surgerys ,, Daughter has surgery and needs another  . How ethical is it for this Dr jus cause he is made at me, and he  knowing our situation having Dr'd us for years to just drop us as patients no warning no heres a thirty day supply good luck in the future  just a bam your done watch your files disappear cause this is what I do to people when im done using them. Is this legal? When we all go into siezures from improper withdraweral can I hold hi, responsiable?

Hi and i'm so sorry for what you have been through.  If it comes down to it then you both need to go to the ER.  Not sure about legal aspect but worry about your health in the meantime,

seizures?  are you taking benzos for pain?  because with opiates there is very very little risk of seizures.

let me put my 2 cents in here....yes its legal for a doctor to discharge you. it is unfortunately totally their discussion whether they keep you on or not. that's the way it is. unfortunately doctors get us hooked then let us go. what are you taking and how long?

but back to the original post....remember all doctors are not good doctors. and if they feel threatened or think your abusing and so forth they can and will discharge a patient. its as simple as that. nobody makes you go to a doctor. nobody makes you take a pill. even if your dying you have the right to refuse care. and unless your dying they have the right to refuse their services.

while you worked there you got to observe first hand on what type of doctor this person was. im sure your not the first person to be discharged. however if you should have medical issues that result in their mismanagement of your health care there is always malpractice lawsuits. however that takes years to get in front of the courts.

if i were you i would find a new doctor and take all your medicine bottles you have so you can start a open honest dialog with the new doctor. and remember if you ever feel like its an emergency go to er....the er has to treat you to get you stable. and the doctor and staff can always refer you to another doctor.

i know this is not what you want to hear bit it is what it is. so can you share more info on your situation...what your taking rhe amount and what for so we can help more
