You are the sole psychologist on what is considered a small-sized base, with a population of approximately 6,000 people, including civilians, dependents, reservists, and active duty personnel. You have an appointment scheduled today with a patient whom you know works within the MTF (Military Treatment Facility). Upon meeting the patient, you realize he is the only active duty physical therapist on base (and you may need his services at some point), and you periodically see him exercising at the base gym or grocery-shopping at the base commissary (supermarket).
Would you proceed with the appointment? Why or why not? If not, how would you manage his desire to receive treatment? Would this change if you deemed his symptoms as mild vs severe? If yes, what are some considerations and how would you address them with him?
