My father went to the ER due to severe pains he was having in his stomach. First doctor to diagnose him said he had gasteritis, gave him pepto bismo and sent him home.. two days later the pains are greater and we go to the clinic, once there a different doctor called the ambulance and informs my father that he had appendisitis and asked why he didn't come to the hospital earlier.. once in the ER we are told the appendisitis has caused an infection in his colon and other surrounding organs.. my father will have to stay in the hospital for a week for treatment if successful no surgery will be performed. So can the first doctor to diagnose him be sued?
