Dallas Directive to Physician Lawyer

Make Your Wishes Known to Your Healthcare Providers

The increase of technology in the medical field has clearly served to benefit countless individuals. Technological advances have served to ease pain, treat symptoms more quickly, cure diseases, and even sustain life. However, it has also brought about controversial ethical issues, particularly in the context of euthanasia. There is nothing more heart-wrenching than watching your loved one suffer and having to be the one who must decide whether to end the life-sustaining treatment.

Because of this, many medical groups suggest their patients sign a directive to physician to avoid putting their loved ones through such a decision. A directive to physician clearly lays out an individual’s desires should they end up in an irreversible condition, a life-sustaining treatment, or a terminal condition.

Drafting a Valid Document

In order for the directive to be valid, you need to have either two witnesses or a notary present.

One of the witnesses cannot be:

  • Your medical power of attorney
  • Your physician
  • An employee at your medical group
  • A blood or legal relative
  • Someone who has a claim against your estate

If you are a minor, your legal guardians must sign your directive for you, but you can change it when you turn 18 if you are mentally and physically competent to do so. Any adult who is physically and mentally able to change his or her directive to physician by writing a written revocation. Simply inform your doctor that you wish to change your directive to physician and they can help you do so.
