See what questions
a doctor would ask.
A doctor has been given probation for causing medical negligence by not supplying acceptable medical records after receiving several warnings. One of the patients used as supporting evidence was a 70 year old woman who was misdiagnosed by the doctor to have diverticulitis, vasculitis and sinusitis. During her treatment under the doctor she had several emergency department visits for chest pain, and required admission to hospital on one incidence for angina, high blood pressure and hypothyroidism. She subsequently underwent coronary bypass surgery. The doctor has been criticized for not writing down patient examination findings, diagnoses or plans for treatment.
