Medical Malpractice

If there is one person people trust implicitly outside of their own family members it is their doctor. When that doctor recommends their patient go see a specialist, that patient also trusts the specialist implicitly. When a doctor violates that trust, it can be emotionally devastating for the patient. But more than that, it can also be fatal.
