When a Houston area resident goes to the doctor they likely expect the doctor to provide an accurate diagnosis. Most of the time doctors are good at helping their patients get better. However, negligent doctors sometimes do not spend enough time and fail to diagnose a serious medical condition.
The failure to diagnose a medical condition is one of the most common medical mistakes doctors can make. Thousands of Americans are affected by these mistakes each year. The doctors may not have paid adequate attention to what the patients were saying or what the test results showed. This can lead to a patient suffering a worsened condition or even death.
