While it’s certainly true that people make mistakes, the errors that a physician makes in providing health care to you can result in chronic, debilitating, and even life-threatening injury.

You entrust your doctor and other health care providers with your physical well being. When primary care doctors are presented with a medical condition beyond their level of training or expertise, they are responsible for referring the patient to competent specialists. If a timely or appropriate referral is not made, a disease or other ailment may not be diagnosed in its early stages, necessary treatment may be delayed, and the outcome may be fatal.

Doctor and physician malpractice can take on many forms, including:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delay in making a diagnosis
  • Failure to treat a disease in a timely manner
  • Failure to order appropriate tests
  • Failure to properly interpret test results
  • Failure to properly treat the diagnosed condition
