A: Your best bet would be to contact an attorney experienced in medical malpractice to discuss your case. Like any relationship, the one between a doctor and their patient may be terminated by either party. The issue in your case is whether there is a continuing duty on the part of the physician to continue providing care while knowing that you require ongoing care.
