Medical appointments can be costly and uncomfortable, but for most, this is a small price to pay to ensure personal well-being. We trust doctors and healthcare professionals to make life-altering choices in regards to our health. That trust is betrayed when they fail to recognize conditions on an appropriate timeline, thus heightening the costs and risks associated with treatment, and jeopardizing one’s state of being.

Delayed diagnoses are among the most common preventable errors permeating the medical profession. They can also be the most harmful. A delayed diagnosis prevents the patient from receiving the care they need to manage or recover from an illness or injury. It is also associated with elevated health care costs, as patients pay for appointments and tests that do not benefit them. If your diagnosis was not made within an appropriate time frame, you may wonder why you bothered seeking medical attention at all. Joseph M. Kar encourages you to pursue legal action.
