2. Inappropriate Touching
Oftentimes, your physician may have to conduct a physical exam that involves touch. Examples include feeling your lymph nodes for swelling, palpating your stomach, and checking for lumps. However, listen to your gut if you feel your doctor is touching you inappropriately. Furthermore, if you request that a female nurse is present when you are alone with a male doctor, your doctor must honor that request.
1. No Longer Covered Under Your Insurance Plan
Sadly, sometimes a beloved or respected physician will no longer be covered under your insurance plan. This may happen when your employer changes insurance carriers, when you switch jobs, or when your doctor leaves your plan. Unless you can afford to pay for your doctor out-of-pocket, financial considerations may mean this is the time to search for a new, in-network physician.
