Patient Termination Policy

Although it is an infrequent occurrence, a patient/physician relationship may be terminated.  Common reasons for termination include, but are not limited to, use of foul language, chronic noncompliance with recommended therapy, abusive behavior of staff, physicians, visitors or other patients, or other disruptive behavior.  A patient whom is terminated will be notified of the termination and will be given 30 days to locate another medical office for their continued care.  Patient termination can be recommended by the patient's primary care provider but will be reviewed and decided upon by a committee consisting of other staff and administration within the MMG.
