Corbin, KY asked in Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice for Kentucky

Q: I had to go back to the Dr to have a second biopsy done it was supposed to have been a punch biopsy. But he walks in the

Room scalpel in hand and starts cutting away no disinfectant no lidocaine didn't ask me if it was ok to do it that way. Now I'm having panic attacks when ever I go to the Dr. Was it legal for him to do it that way without letting me decide. He was aggrivated because me and my doctor wanted biopsy results he was supposed to have done when he debried it . He diagnosed the rash as angry skin but turned out to be a vasculitis rash. I think ( my opinion)he isn't giving people on Medicaid or Medicare the same treatment patients with good insurance get. But I might have to have a 3rd biopsy because he still didn't test for the things we needed him to.

A: A Kentucky attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You could reach out to med mal attorneys in your state to try to arrange a free initial consult. If they felt that further review was warranted, they could discuss your file with a medical professional. Good luck
