Diagnosis: The Most Important Duty
The most important part of any doctor’s job is to diagnose his or her patient’s illness or injury. Modern medicine has tremendous stores of knowledge and technology available to help a doctor perform this critical duty. Unfortunately, many cases of cancer, heart attack, brain injury, infection, appendicitis and meningitis – just to name a few – go misdiagnosed or completely undiagnosed every year.
As a result, patients are getting the wrong treatments or no treatments at all, and the results are deadly. We have represented the families of children who died of meningitis because their pediatrician wasn’t paying attention, men who have lost their legs to compartment syndrome because an orthopedic doctor failed to perform a simple test, and widows who lost their husbands to heart attacks because an emergency room doctor didn’t follow routine diagnostic testing rules.
In every case, if the doctor had just followed basic diagnosis rules required by the medical profession, the tragedy would have been averted.
