Cancer: Delayed Diagnosis, Improper Treatment
A cancer diagnosis was once a death sentence. That is no longer the case for many forms of the disease. Advancements in detection and treatment have improved the prognosis and extended life expectancy of millions of cancer patients.
Prompt and proper diagnosis of the disease is the key to a successful outcome. Unfortunately, failures to diagnose cancer, misdiagnosis and delays in diagnosis are among the most common forms of medical malpractice that we see at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder PC.
Medical Malpractice Limits a Patient’s Options for Treatment
