Hello. My dad has a severe anxiety problem. His doctor is "slow" at responding to his needs, so we've explored other options, like the VA (Veterans Affair). The VA has given him a check-up, but now, he fears that his primary doctor will take away some of his benefits since he is with the VA now. He's extremely stressed about it, and it's the only thing on his mind. Is is possible that his primary doctor can do this? Or is it completely normal for people to explore other health cares without interfering with their primary one?
It's not out of the ordinary for people to seek other care besides their primary care provider. Patients are free to choose their care provider(s), within the constraints of any insurance involved, of course. I'm not aware of any circumstances under which the primary can "take away some of his benefits," unless I'm really misunderstanding what you mean.
It is your dad's anxiety that is causing him to feel his primary doctor will take away his right to chose to be seen by whomever, he so desire. His primary doctor doesn't have the authority to take away his options to be seen by as many doctors as he choose. His condiction is creating a problem where there isn't one. Please advise him to continue to seek the best possible care from whomever, can help him to get better.
