Patient-Doctor Privileged Communication: The Texas Medical Association (1) opposes efforts by the Texas Legislature to insert itself into the patient-physician relationship in any way that interferes with the free and full disclosure of health care information in the best interests of the patient, and (2) reaffirms its support of the free exchange of professional information in the patient-physician relationship as privileged and worthy of the highest professional protection (Amended Res. 108-A-13; reaffirmed CSPH Rep. 3-A-19).
