Customer Question

I'm not sure if this falls under contract law, but i'll give it a shot. I had a medical procedure done at a private clinic in Ontario. When discussing the option of surgery I made it very clear that I was not interested in a surgical option if the recovery time would be more than a month. The podiatrist assured me that I would be perfectly fine after 3 weeks. I am not yet able to use my foot and the podiatrist said that it's because this happens for people with the type of deformity I have. Had he told me that I had a high risk of longer healing times I would not have opted for surgery at this time, and he would not have made 4 grand. I did sign the medical release forms indicating that I understand that there were these kinds of risks but I don't believe he acted in good faith by not advising me that I specifically was high risk. It is to be noted that this doctor was a dentist in Quebec that had his licence permanently revoked for the death of one patient, the near death of 2 others and countless complaints. This information did not appear in english media so a Google search in english did not display results for what was a huge story in Quebec. What do you think?
