NEVER SETTLE FOR LESS. WORK WITH THE BEST.
Philadelphia Failure to Diagnose Lawyer
Early detection of a disease is the key to treatment. However, in today’s world of health care insurance companies cutting costs, many times doctors do not take the time to listen to a patient’s complaints or take the proper time or steps to determine the nature of the medical problem. Obviously, without a proper diagnosis no proper treatment is possible. A patient should receive the doctor’s full attention, which includes taking a full history, conducting a full and thorough examination, and often ordering testing or referral to a specialist.
Where a doctor should have known that a patient had a life-threatening illness or disease, but did not diagnose this illness or disease properly, he may have acted negligently in acting below the standard of care required of doctors.
