Question regarding proper practice of physicians
My partner hasn’t seen their doctor in years as they live 8 hours away. They communicate strictly through facebook messenger and the doctor prescribes multiple narcotics and other medication through a personal account under a psuedo name. My partner has addiction issues and I’m afraid that they are abusing this situation.
Ultimately, Is it appropriate for doctors to communicate and prescribe through Facebook without any assessments?… I find the whole thing a little scary.
