Unfortunately, all Texas residents have to deal with health issues and ailments at some point during their lives. Fortunately, medical professionals have the skills, experience and education to diagnose and treat patients. While many patients are timely and properly diagnosed everyday, some medical problems are more difficult to pinpoint. Even more so, if a medical professional fails to uphold their duty of care, he or she could fail to diagnose or misdiagnose a patient.
