Paula doesn't want her violent boyfriend to know she's getting an abortion, so she ask her Dr. to send all communications to her to a post office box an to phone her only at work. What should the Dr. do legally?

The doctor should tell the police, in every single situation, but secure Paula first to make sure she does not get hurt.

I disagree, Misty.
The doctor should follow Paula's directions and send all communications to the p.o. box or phone her at work.

The doctor should honor Paula's request it is patient doctor confidentiality.
