Doctor surrenders medical license due to medical malpractice

Wednesday September 11, 2013

The tri-state area is home to medical professionals who have considerable experience. Residents of New Haven, Connecticut, are confident that they will be provided with the best quality health care whenever they need it. However, that is not always the case. According to the increasing number of medical malpractice reports that have come out in the past, some of the area’s medical professionals have used their profession to accomplish personal agendas.

In the same vein, a doctor has recently given up his license to practice medicine in New York after being accused of professional misconduct. The doctor, who is faced with numerous medical malpractice lawsuits, allegedly committed negligence in medical care, improperly billed patients and kept improper medical records.

The doctor was an orthopedic surgeon from 1999 to 2011; he was fired in 2011. His former patients stated in the multiple malpractice lawsuits that he botched operations, performed fake surgeries and prolonged patients’ illnesses. The order to surrender his license was posted on the state’s Department of Health website.

What readers from New Haven may not know is that medical malpractice is a very dangerous act of negligence. It is important to understand that patients entrust their lives to the doctor in every medical procedure. A slight mistake may debilitate a person and worse, it can possibly lead to a fatality. Furthermore, these victims may also suffer financially due to a prolonged hospital stay, mounting medical expenses and lost wages.

Anyone who is the victim of medical malpractice should consider their legal rights. These rights may give personal injury victims the chance to file a lawsuit against the doctors or hospital involved and prove that negligence has occurred. Nobody should have to suffer financially because of someone else’s medical malpractice.
