Stroke patient sues doctor for negligence

A man who sought medical advice after experiencing prolonged fatigue, disorientation, and left sided weakness, is suing his doctor for failing to diagnose a cerebrovascular event (stroke) after reviewing blood tests, CT and MRI brain scans. The patient alleges that the doctor was also negligent in failing to refer him on to a neurologist before he returned for a second time a few weeks later with similar symptoms, which were diagnosed at that time to be caused by a stroke. The man is seeking compensation for physical and mental anguish, and loss of income.
