Can I file a complaint against a nurse practioner for being dropped as a patient?

Asked about 2 years ago - Jeffersonville, KY

My nurse prac. dropped me as a patient because I hired and paid her son to do a job, which he didn't do. I filed a legal complaint to get my money back. I am being treated for major depression and an anxiety disorder. I was having a really hard time, so I changed my appointment from Dec. 19th to Oct. 31st, at which time I was told she would no longer be treating me. I was devastated and starting havine worse symptoms. It is extremely hard to get established with someone else when you have mental health issues. I was just wondering if this was legal.
