This patient emailed me for refills only; not to schedule an appointment. She & her husband were in full agreement with ECT. She did not follow-up with her PreAnesthetic Evaluation, nor notify me or the Hospital ECT Department of her change in plan. She did not keep her every 3 month follow-up appointment routine. And, contacted me 4 months later only when she was running out of meds. Health Insurance pays 1/3 less for ECT compared to my Private Office. I called her refills in free of charge.
