    The term has legal significance, so anytime you have been seen by a doctor, you have "developed a relationship" whether or not you see it as such. It is much more difficult to refuse treatment to someone once this relationship has been established.

    I can't find where I made the statement you are quoting, so I can't comment.

    They did in fact find another doctor. They did the one appointment with the "substitute", then got another doctor/group. The "facility" didn't select another doctor for them. The doctor that refused to see their daughter asked her colleague to see their child for that appointment (which it was good that she agreed and was able), and then they found themselves another doctor altogether to go to.

    Exactly. They went in ; a different doctor showed for the appt; then after that appt they found another facility that was more welcoming.

    Luckily, they were in an area where there WERE other facilities. It would have been awkward (in my opinion) to keep going to the same facility, risking running into the doctor who refused to treat their child.

    It's what you said. If all you had complained about was the govt forcing people to do something, I would have taken a different tack and pointed out that the govt does that all the time. They force people to not murder each other, cross streets at the corner on red lights, not litter, take care of their children, etc.

    So you didn't just complain that the govt forces people to do things. That's what govts do. And if you didn't claim that they were forcing people because that was what people wanted the govt to do then why did you complain about the govt forcing people to do things ?
