Doctor Malpractice From Delayed Diagnosis or Failure to Diagnose
When a person goes to the doctor, often because he or she does not feel well or thinks something is wrong, it is reasonable to expect that the doctor will be able to tell you what is happening. Sometimes, patients are sent away with assurances that everything is fine, even though that is far from the case. Unfortunately, the failure to diagnose cancer in a timely fashion can let invaluable treatment time pass by.
At Brown & Crouppen, in St. Louis and Kansas City, our experienced attorneys understand that time is of the essence when it comes to cancer diagnosis. Doctors should not send away patients who need treatment or tell someone that cancer is untreatable when a patient has options. All of these may be examples of malpractice and doctors should be held accountable for these kinds of mistakes.
Did you know? People go to doctors because of their specialized knowledge, and when a doctor fails to diagnose cancer correctly and in a timely manner, he or she may have failed to meet the legal responsibility to the patient.
