Belleview, FL asked in Legal Malpractice, Health Care Law and Medical Malpractice for Florida

Q: Florida pain doc. His ARNP is forcing me that I either get a pain pump or a spine stimulator implant. Is this legal?

The docs ARNP is forcing me to get the pain pump or the spinal stimulator implanted or cut me as a patient. I don't want anything inserted surgically when the pill that they give me is working. Can they legally force me to have one or the other surgically done? I feel like this is a crime? Who can I report it to? Thank you so much! It's in Ocala Florida.

A: Just say no. If they refuse to treat you anymore, so be it; get another health care provider.
