Thank you for your response.
Legally, if there are no damages, there is no suit you can file.
If the doctor did not give you proper care and did not show up for a procedure and did not send another doctor and you had to demand another one be used, then this is a complaint you can file with the state medical board for a ethics violation and generally these cases result in a reprimand for a first offense of abandoning a patient and falsifying a authorization if the doctor filled out the authorization and the hospital never filled out a new one for the new doctor to perform the procedure. However, these are all administrative violations and without any harm coming to you as a patient, the courts cannot entertain any legal action as a result of the conduct.
Thus, your sole recourse is a complaint to the medical board and to the hospital if he is on staff there.
