Surgeon's mistake results in permanent nerve damage to patient

Patients in Providence want to be able to trust that the care that they receive from their doctors and surgeons is the absolute best. They also most likely hope that should complications arise, not only will their providers be able to deal with them, but also that they will be forthcoming about the work done during their procedures. If one continues to have pain following a procedures, or worse yet, end up in a worsened condition, he or she may be well served to seek a second opinion from another doctor who can provide an objective analysis of the other's work.

Wife alleges misdiagnosis resulted in her husband's death

Even though most medical professionals in Providence don't care to admit it, the fact is that diagnosing patients often involves guesswork. Signs and symptoms can only tell so much, after all. Yet advances in medical science that have greatly improved diagnostic testing should at least give providers a clear picture of what's going on inside of their patients. It's then up to them to take the results of those diagnostic tests and use their own expertise to come up with the correct diagnosis.

Hearing loss due to doctor errors, woman claims

Modern society relies wholeheartedly on medical professionals to diagnose and properly treat ailments. From a list of symptoms, a Providence doctor is trained to piece together the health warning signs in order to be directed to the underlying source of the issue. When a doctor error occurs, for example when a physician fails to notice obvious indicators of a greater fundamental problem, the consequences can be damaging. Misdiagnosis or delayed treatment can lead to the spread of infections, a worsened condition that is difficult to treat and sometimes even an irreversible disability.
