Customer Question
requirements for an endometrial...
After two months of complying with all preliminary requirements for an endometrial biopsy and taking drugs for the procedure on that day, we arrived for the procedure. Prior to the procedure, the physicians assistant made a number of mistakes, as did Dr. Boots. Dr. Boots gave me a prescription that was not compatible with the drugs I was taking. I told this to the doctor at the meeting on Oct. 20th and she seemed unconcerned. She was more concerned that I was "not kind" to her staff. Then she refused to do the procedure. I have had menstrual pains since that date, due to the drug Misoprostol. Since I am 67 years old, this is most uncomfortable on day 3 of taking the drug. Dr. Boots delayed treatment. I had the procedure done on Oct. 20th done by another doctor, who had to do it since I was in labor. When the new doctor finally got the medical records from Boots, she learned the procedure was unnecessary. If Dr. Boots had read the results of my ultra sound test, this procedure would not be necessary, according to my new gynecologist.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is there any recourse we would be able to pursue that would reimburse us for pain and suffering?
Consumer Protection Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 2 years ago

You could pursue a medical malpractice claim. That cause of action allows for you to recover pain and suffering as well as other damages.

The problem is that medical malpractice cases are extremely expensive to pursue, the least I have ever seen one cost was $50k in expenses with $100k and up being more normal. That means that a case has to be likely to generate damages of $500k or more before a lawyer would consider taking the case.
