Indianapolis, IN asked in Medical Malpractice for Iowa

Q: I think I have a medical misdiagnosis case

I went to planned parenthood for STD testing. The results came back positive for a STD. They were to prescribe me some meds. Well after checking daily for several days at my local pharmacy the meds were not there. So I called Planned parenthood and got a run around. This ended up happening over and over again for about 3 weeks. ThenI finally decided to get tested again somewhere else so I could get my meds. Once retested it proved I never had a STD. I called planned parenthood and told them there was another sample in the window when I submitted mine, and they did not have me put any identifying information on it. They eventually ended up admitting fault and said they would reimburse my insurance. I feel like this was a medical misdiagnosis and it caused pain and suffering and ongoing anxiety. My husband was tested there as well and given meds off top due to my diagnosis. He took the meds and in the ending didnt even need them.
