Primary care doctors are the first line of defense against diseases and illnesses for many people. But when these doctors provide inadequate care due to overwork or other factors, their patients can remain untreated for serious illnesses or otherwise get harmed.

Did Your Doctor Personally Provide the Level of Care You Deserved?
Primary care physicians are generally extremely busy people, a situation that too often causes them to leave important patient-care tasks to nurses and other staff members. These people may be very good at what they do, but they are not qualified to provide actual medical care.
If you have been injured or were not provided adequate treatment due to neglect or other negligence by a primary care doctor, you may have a medical malpractice claim.
During a routine checkup, your doctor has a responsibility to personally respond to all signs and symptoms of disease. During any type of medical procedure, your doctor needs to monitor your condition and take responsibility for the quality of treatment you receive.
