Patient wanting to see 2 Providers
In my practice, I will sometimes get patients who want to see more than one Psychiatrist at the same time for medications. It is my understanding that this is at the very least not ethical or legal if there is no communication between the 2 providers. I have been pressured by " the powers that be" to see some of these patients and give them medications despite not having access to the other provider records or having any communication with the other provider. There are not capacity or... Patient wanting to see 2 Providers (Source: Student Doctor Network)
