My question involves public health law in the State of: WASHINGTON
I recently found out my doctor, who I have been with for years and am very satisfied with, moved. I found out their new location, and scheduled an appointment, but was told by my doctor on arrival that they cannot even accept me into the new practice's system because the old practice could sue them.
Is this legal? I CHOSE to follow my Dr., FOUND their new practice myself, and wasn't solicited at all. I understand THEY signed an agreement -- but I haven't signed anything of this sort. Doesn't this infringe on my freedom to choose?
