I went to an infectious disease doctor last year in November, with symptoms of Lyme disease, paralysis, memory loss, seizures,etc. He put me on a month of iv antibiotics and let me go. I found a new doctor because I was still sick. I am now diagnosed with Herpes Encephalitis, Mono, Parvio virus and Lyme Disease. He failed to diagnosis them all. I just found out 1 month ago what was wrong. Herpes encephalitis kills. Still having seizures after all this. because of his failure to diagnosis. Please contact me if you can help!
Generally the diagnosis for these ailments are given to labs for determination, I would get the diagnoses, and go see a lawyer in the county where this took place.

Failure to diagnose on these limited facts will be difficult to establish malpractice. Beyond that, you would need to quantify the delay with damages that relate. Sorry, but lawyers on Avvo have agreed not to contact you. You must search and contact them. Look here on Avvo, search justice.org as well. Many fine attorney in/around TN. Good luck.

this is not definitely medical malpractice. You would need all your records and a determination as to why it was not previously diagnosed. It may not be a winnable claim. Look for a lawyer in Clarksville
If the first Dr. departed from accepted standards of practice you may well have a case. Speak to local malpractice counsel to have records reviewed and discussed with an infectious disease expert.
