    Default What Should a Doctor Do if a Patient Posts Negative Comments Online

    My question involves malpractice in the state of: NY
    I am a pain management physician who does expert witness work and chart reviews.

    I am very cautious with opiate medication have interventional pain practice. I have never had this experience, but Iíve had colleagues who have, so I am wondering, hypothetically,
    - If I refuse to give opiates to a patient because I feel that they are drug seeking, and then they slander me online, what are my rights, how should I respond ?

    If the post meets the definition of defamation and you think it is worth your time and money find a lawyer.

    Whether or not it would be a good idea to respond to anything negative written about you online is something that can only be answered on a case by case basis and depends on the relevant facts and circumstances.
