Dr. Komie's  Rights and  Responsibilities

  • It is understood that Dr. Komie will not terminate services until agreed upon goals have been met, as long as he deems, in his professional opinion, that the treatment is helpful and that progress is still possible.

  • Dr. Komie will only work with individuals whose condition requires medical monitoring if they are also under a qualified physician's care during the treatment.

  • Dr. Komie may also refuse treatment or terminate or interrupt treatment to any individual whom he deems is in need of treatment at a greater frequency, intensity, or degree of structure or a different modality than he can provide. He would, of course, provide referrals in case that he could no longer continue a treatment or counseling relationship.

  • Dr. Komie does not see patients in the hospital.
