Death with Dignity, in an article, "How Death with Dignity Laws Work,: accessed on July 12, 2018, available at, stated:

“It is important to discuss your end-of-life wishes with your physician as early as possible. The benefit of doing this even if you are healthy is that if your physician does not share your values on this subject, you will have the chance to look for a willing physician while you still have the energy and time to do so… It is important to have this discussion [about physician-assisted suicide] with your physician in person. Do not ask their office staff, nurse, or assistant or leave a request on their voice mail. Above all, avoid demanding your physician’s assistance. Under death with dignity laws your physician is not required to participate and may have valid reasons for declining.”
