Successful treatment of heart disease relies heavily on early detection of the signs of heart disease, followed by immediate and thorough treatment. If a doctor misses signs of heart disease, or fails to appropriately treat symptoms of heart disease — and if significant injury occurs as a result — then the patient may have a claim for medical malpractice or medical negligence based on failure to diagnose.
