I am the custodial parent and i have the exclusive rigjt to mediacl after consulting with the father. I informed the gather that i was going to xhange doctors becauae every month there is a problem with prescription abuse. Every month i have problems trying to get prescriprion filled because the doctor constantly give him scripts that he should not have. I have been dealing with this problem since August and i am tired of dealing with it. I told hom the doctor was very unprofessionalnal which causes problems between me and him
I told him i was going to change doctors so that we will not have anymore problems and he disagree because his other son goes to that doctor and he dont want to have to travel. He has mu son in the same room with his other son to make his other son talk which is very unprofessional. He tells me if i change the doctor that he will change him back but i have exclusive right to medical. How can i handle this sitiation?
Moving your question from civil rights to child custody so you can get a more focused answer to your issue.
If you have an exclusive right to make medical decisions, do it. If consultation is required, do it.
Your ex might file suit to modify.

You consulted with him., He disagreed. Since you have exclusive medical, you can do what you want to do.
Get a copy of the file and move kid. Let Dad know where the new doctor is. Make sure the doctor is on your insurance plan.
Tell old doctor that he does not have your consent to see the kid again. If you have signed a HIPAA form for Dad to talk to old doctor then revoke it. Put the part about you not wanting this doctor to treat your son in writing. Fax or mail it certified. Keep proof that he received it. In fact, I'd do both & deliver a copy in person and have the receptionist sign for the letter.

If you have the exclusive right to make medical decisions according to your order--that answers your own question. If that is what your order says, you are the only one with the right to make those decisions--so if your ex changed him back that would be a clear violation of the court order.
I don't see what difference it makes if two minor siblings are in the doctor's office at the same time. It might even make them feel better.
Accepting cases in Dallas, Denton, Collin and Tarrant Counties. THIS IS GENERAL ADVICE AND DOES NOT REPLACE A PERSONAL CONSULTATION WITH AN ATTORNEY AND DOES NOT ESTABLISH AN ATTORNEY/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
