As a Medical Malpractice Attorney, I have dealt with and heard stories of my fair share of medical errors. One that comes up quite often is a doctor missing a diagnosis, or more accurately, failing to inform the patient of a diagnosis, and subsequently begin treatment.
We’ve all heard the phrase “no news is good news.” But when it comes to medical test results, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
If you get tests done and have to await results, follow up!!
Too often, doctors receive results that they do not disclose to patients, and diseases and disorders end up going untreated for months and even years at a time.
In order to avoid this dangerous and potentially fatal accident, be sure to follow up if you have not heard from your doctor regarding medical tests you underwent.
Negligence and Medical Malpractice is an unfortunate truth in the medical industry. Doctors work hard and can not be expected to be perfect. If there are certain measures we can take to protect ourselves from malpractice, those measures should be taken. And a simple phone call is nothing compared to what our doctors and surgeons do for us everyday.
