New York Doctor Diagnosis Errors

Delayed Diagnosis, Failure to Diagnose, and Misdiagnosis

Medical Malpractice Practice Areas:

Physician malpractice is a bigger problem than most people want to admit. While it is normal to place your trust and confidence in the doctor who is treating you, it is important to remember that physicians are not infallible. When their mistakes result in death or disability, the law allows you to recover the losses that the medical malpractice caused. Delayed diagnosis, failure to diagnose, and misdiagnosis are some of the common areas of medical malpractice claims. These errors often include the failure to refer to an appropriate specialist and the failure to order diagnostic tests or studies.

Failure to Diagnose and Misdiagnosis

The failure to diagnose and medical misdiagnosis are serious risks you face every time you go to the doctor or hospital. Everyday, doctors are rushing through their day, seeing as many patients as they can. Long hours and overbooked schedules cause the doctors to spend less time with their patients than they should. They fail to take the time to really learn why the patient came to the office in the first place. The failure of the doctor to properly or timely diagnose your condition can result in serious injuries or death.

Common diseases that are frequently misdiagnosed are:


Delayed Diagnosis

As with many diseases, illnesses, or injuries, a delayed diagnosis can leave a patient in worse condition than if the diagnosis had been made earlier. Considering that many cancers are treatable and curable if detected in a timely manner, any failure to diagnose or any delay in the diagnosis of cancer or other life-threatening conditions can result in devastating consequences, including the spread of the cancer or even death.

If you believe that your loved one’s medical condition or cancer wasn’t timely diagnosed, was diagnosed incorrectly, or if you have any questions, please call our toll-free number at 1 (888) 878-3342 today.
