Asked in Medical Malpractice for Tennessee

Q: Can I sue my gynecologist for pain and suffering. I have been to the gynecologist four times.

My first appt was for a cervical biopsy, it came back insufficient.

Went back second time same thing

Went back third time, finally a good test. But they are running the wrong test.

Came back again upset, they finally ran a pap

Go to surgery today and can’t have surgery my results aren’t back.

It’s several patients coming back in for the same reason wrong test and insufficient testing. I spoke with the office manager, because it seems like they are doing this on purpose to charge you for office visits and bill your insurance constantly: These procedures are really painful and takes days to recover from.

A: Medical malpractice requires a breach in the standard of care and damages from the breach.

A doctor would have to provide if there was a breach. You do have damages, but you would need attorney consultations to determine if the damages warrant bringing a case.
