At first I was not attracted to this surgeon, in fact, I was annoyed with him and tried to change doctors. At appointments, he spent a great deal of time with me, 20-30 minutes, and did all the dirty work like cleaning incisions, bandaging, etc. A friend told me I am suffering from transference, but I don't think so. He would sit in my room and chat about non-medical things.Replaces: part of 4731-27-01 A physician-patient relationship is established when the physician provides service to a person to address medical needs, whether the service was provided by mutual consent or implied consent, or was provided without consent pursuant to a court order.Once a physician-patient relationship is established, a person remains a patient until the relationship is terminated.(A) Except as provided in paragraph (B) of this rule, a physician shall comply with the following requirements in order to dismiss a patient from the medical practice:(1) Send notice to the patient that includes all of the following:(a) A statement that the physician-patient relationship is terminated; (b) A statement that the physician will continue to provide emergency treatment and access to services for up to thirty days from the date the letter was mailed, to allow the patient to secure care from another licensee; and (c) An offer to transfer records to a new provider upon the patient's signed authorization to do so.(C) Except as provided in paragraph (D) of this rule, a physician who is an independent contractor or who has an ownership interest in a health care entity shall provide notice in compliance with the following requirements when leaving, selling, or retiring from the health care entity where the physician has provided physician services:(1) The notice shall be sent to all patients who received physician services from the physician within the two-years immediately preceding the physician's last date for seeing patients; (2) The notice shall be provided as authorized in paragraph (A)(1) or (A)(2) of this rule.(a) The notice shall be sent no later than thirty days prior to the last date the physician will see patients or upon actual knowledge that the physician will be leaving, selling, or retiring from the health care entity, whichever is earlier.
