There was a billing issue based on the timing of his billing staff. One day before my next apt. I received a call saying he would not see me until I cleared it up. I told them that I would gladly pay out of pocket for my visit and that I can not just stop this type of medication cold,as the withdrawal symptoms are quite severe. He said absolutely not. I am now sitting here experiencing the worst feelings I could ever describe to you. I have been on 80mg a day for the past 6 years, and he has cut me off without the proper weaning down, because of a monetary issue.
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional's negligence causes injury to a patient. Incorrect actions and inaction can both be forms of negligence.
Pain and suffering refers to physical and mental trauma caused by an injury, and is often a significant component of non-economic damages.
