    Answered . You may very well have a claim but understand that Medical Malpractice cases remain one of the most difficult types of cases to win in Texas. You need to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney immediately., Records will have to be obtained and an expert physician will have to be hired by your attorney to review the facts and medical records to determine whether your doctor breached the accepted "standard of care" for a physician practicing in that area of medicine in that locale. There is no easy answer here. If you want to call me I can give you names of several prominent medical malpractice attorneys to call. They do not charge for a consultation and if they accept your case it is on a percentage fee basis and if no recovery obtained, you usually don't owe them any money. Feel free to call me at 512-708-1650 or visit my website at www.kevinmadison.com and you can email me.

    Answered . In addition to the potential medical malpractice issue which Mr. Madison has correctly identified and properly addressed, your post raises a serious medical ethics issue. The Texas Medical Practice Act prohibits licensed physicians from lying to patients. I suggest you report the physician to the Texas Medical Board. The Board cannot award you any money, but it can discipline the physician on a finding of unethical conduct. A link to the TMB website appears below.

    Good luck.
