Our expert says:
Thank you for your kind words which make my day! The decision to consult a healthcare professional once and to go for follow-up appointments is up to the individual patient. You will have to decide if you wish to see the specific dietitian again or not. If you decide not to continue seeing the dietitian then it is protocol to phone her rooms and cancel any appointment that may have been made (in good time) and/or to tell her or her receptionist that you are not going to be seeing her again. As you say, the decision is yours, but you must at least out of courtesy let the professional know what is going on. You don't mention for what condition you consulted the dietitian, so think carefully before you take your decision to cancel follow-ups. If you have a condition like an eating disorder (?) then you may be trying to avoid help that would assist you in recovery.
