Navarre, FL asked in Legal Malpractice, Libel & Slander, Medical Malpractice and Personal Injury for Florida

Q: Any suggestions in a scenario where "medical professional" presented predetermined false testimony as expert witness?

Psychological evaluation at the request of defense, patient retains privilege to my comprehension? Information remains confidential, requiring written consent to reveal? Misdiagnosis provided, recommendation made is preposterously unethical and malicious.

Intent to generate prejudice, effective.
