An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. There wasn't a question included, but if you are wondering if the incident rose to the level of providing you with grounds for a med mal case, it doesn't sound like it. There is generally a need for showing... Read more »

You might have a case. Medical malpractice means that a doctor violated the standard of care. A bad outcome is not enough. Another doctor would be needed to evaluate what the doctors did. Consult with experienced attorneys.
I recently saw a doctor who did multiple tests and claimed nothing was wrong. The symptoms never improved and I ended up missing some work because of my condition. The doctor was quite rude to me and it felt like he didn't care. I'm getting a second opinion from another doctor. If the... Read more »

If the failure to diagnose was below the medical standard of care and the failure to diagnose caused additional harm, you may have a case. Due to the nature of medical malpractice cases, the extent of your injuries may effect the viability of your case.
Recently and my mother could not find any information about this case as it was through email and we can’t get access to his phone. Is there a way to figure out who was on this case? Thankyou!!!

An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. One reason is that many states require a physician to affirm that a prospective medical malpractice case is based on valid grounds.

I had breast surgery, post op I literally felt a tube in my left breast. I told the dr multiple times that information, asking him to palpate it, and he refused. He said it was just inflammation and refused to palpate it. He said it may take up to a year for the inflammation to go down.

If you want to pay tens of thousands of dollars for an expert witness, deal with very complex legal issues, maximally increase your risks of losing, sure, do it yourself. It's like complex surgery. Do it yourself--without a medical degree? Possible, but you'd be unlikely to survive.
