FAILURE TO DIAGNOSE 150 150 Lauren Ellerman

Did you doctor think your Lyme disease was cellulitis?

Was multiple sclerosis mis-diagnosed as vision problem?

Did the lab tell you your path report came back clean and you learned 6 months later it was dysplastic, pre-melanoma?

These mistakes happen all the time. Sometimes, patients are harmed by the misdiagnosis. Sometimes, the mistake causes emotional pain, but not physical damage, and does not prevent necessary treatment.

Each case is different – just because there has been a misdiagnosis, or failure to diagnose, does not mean you have a case. We are happy to help determine if your case does have merit.
