In addition to asking yourself about the diagnostic process, as described in Part 1, you should also ask yourself:

  • Did my doctor answer any of my questions about my diagnosis or condition?

    If not, this can be another warning sign of malpractice. This is because diligent, experienced physicians will generally be available to patients and will be able to answer their questions – especially when it comes to questions about a recent diagnosis and the upcoming treatment.

    However, when doctors shy away from patients’ questions, avoid giving them straightforward answers and/or give patients the runaround, patients should see such behaviors as red flags and are advised to seek second medical opinions.

  • Did another doctor have a different diagnosis of my condition?

    This may be one of the more obvious red flags for patients, as two different diagnoses from different doctors is a clearer warning sign that one doctor may have made a mistake (such as not running the proper tests, not reading the test results correctly, not considering all the patient’s medical history, etc.).

    When patients run into this issue in the process of receiving medical care, they should seek a third medical opinion (to try to seek which doctor may be more or less credible than the other), and they are also urged to consult with an attorney to learn more about their legal options for compensation.
