SOCIAL MEDIA AND DUAL RELATIONSHIPS: Due to legal and ethical considerations, we will not “friend”
or accept a request to connect with a patient on any social media site, including, but not limited to, Facebook,
Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn.
Medical Treatment and Services is not a friendship, but a working relationship where you have a
protected, confidential space with which to work on yourself and resolve your personal struggles with the assistance
of a trained, objective professional.
Planned, outside social contact is also not allowed, such as lunches or coffee
If we meet in a public arena, we are not allowed to approach you, but we can speak to you after you
speak to us. This is to protect your confidentiality and your private life outside of the office.
