Frank Huerta Jr's answer I would suggest you ask the doctor to modify the notes or write a specific note regarding the need for supervised care. It is unlikely the IRS will want to examine patient medical records. In most cases, correspondence from the treating Physician will suffice.
Louis George Fazzi's answer You can start by going back to that hospital to their billing department and correct the record there. Make sure that you provide them accurate information concerning you and your own family, and tell them at the other person was only a roommate and is not a relative. I don’t know what kind of impression you made on the person who signed your roommate up, but you have to be careful to make sure that you are not related to the roommate who needed the heart surgery.
Kevin Christopher Murphy's answer Maybe. More facts are needed but if you actually had a wrong diagnosis and the physician breached the standard of care, within the applicable statute of limitations, you may have a legal claim. I suggest you call a medical malpractice attorney in your local jurisdiction for a Free Consultation to fully explore your rights, responsibilities and obligations. Good luck and sorry to hear about your troubles!
Gerald Barry Dorfman's answer You would be incredibly foolish to try to bring this case yourself. Consult medical malpractice attorneys. Provide them with the medical records. These types of cases require expert opinions regarding the standard of care and causality. Do not try to do this yourself.

Impetigo is a bacterial infection. If you got it at a beauty salon, there should be other customers who were infected there, too. These government board investigations might be able to locate the others, which would...
Louis George Fazzi's answer The consequences could include the loss of your driving privileges. Any medical condition which could impact your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle is of relevance to the DMV, particularly at license renewal time. If you were to go into a diabetic seizure, coma or some other, similar event while driving, you would obviously be a danger to yourself and others on the road. The DMV have the ability to inquire about possible medical conditions affecting the ability to safely operate motor...
Nancy J. Wallace's answer Just because you 'a doctor' on the Medical Provider Network does not mean you receive standard medical treatment... most docs on the MPN look at a patient and provide no treatment whatsoever. That is how they remain on the MPN. You get zero for mental distress and chronic pain, you get treatment only now for psychiatric injuries, so in most cases it's a huge invasion of privacy for two visits with a psychologist, just not worth it. TIME BETTER SPENT would be thoroughly researching the...
Priscilla Ann Madrid's answer If you feel that your father is being financially abused by his brother the first step would be to file a report with adult protective services in your area. You may also want to file a petition for appointment of yourself as conservator of the person and estate of your father. Consult with an attorney in your area to determine whether this is a viable option. You can find out more about conservatorships on your local superior court website. Many courts offer conservatorship workshops for...
To answer your question, no, the doctor doesn't have to show you his degree. Further, a degree only means that the doctor graduated from medical school. It doesn't mean that s/he has a license from the state to...
Karima Gulick's answer Even if fully compliant with California law, Cannabis and CBD is still a Schedule I drug under the Federal Controlled Substances Act.
It really depends on which product you are trying to patent. If it's a cannabis related substance, chances are you won't get any patent on the product. If it's a smoking device on the other side, there might be ways to highlight the features of the smoking device which are unrelated to CBDs.

Dale S. Gribow's answer to be safe i always advise doctors to get a new lien...........thus locking in the new lawyer.
when case settles if the attorney has not signed lien and the client ORDERS him not to pay the lawyer is in a difficult position and i suspect would not pay........as would be the case if it happened to me.
Sally Bergman's answer Your brother's failures certainly do sound like neglect and likely should be reported to Adult Protective Services. That said, there are a lot of questions that would need to be answered. Was the elder not able to receive any of the messages? Did the doctor ever send a letter? I would think that under these circumstances, there should have been more effort than 5 messages over a period of six months. Also, if the physician knew the patient wasn't able to personally respond and that your...
Salim U. Shaikh's answer As you have already entered into a lease agreement and shifted to your selected appt. that of course may have visited by you earlier, terminating lease or immediate move out might consume your time.
I suggest, take advantage of relocation offer to another appt. Prior to shifting, visit and make a thorough check whether that appt is having similar problem or not. If that looks better shift there to avoid unnecessary hassle.
As you will shift to another appt. you might have to...
