Physicans dating patients

The patient requested a prescription for an oral contraceptive and was offered testing, including blood work and mammography.

One month later the patient returned and stated, “I just had to see you again.” During the office visit, she made little eye contact with me.

Four months later she returned to the clinic with a sore throat and was seen by one of my partners.

It is likely that all physicians, regardless of training, would recognize that this case scenario deals with a seductive patient.

I discussed the situation with the organization's risk manager and documented it.
