My doctor has been treating me since August for Pleurisy. He prescribed me Naproxen only. It went on then I started having chest pains. He finally prescribed me antibiotics after 2 weeks I was still hurting. I went back to see him he then done blood work and prescribed me another round of antibiotics. All the while I was telling him I had terrible chest pain. That night I went to Emergency room with chest pain and numbness in left arm. I was admitted into hospital for possible heart attack. The ER doctor sent me for stress test. My doctor was there and then told me he thought I had wolf Parkinson's white he never prescribed me any medication for chest pain and I had to wait a week to see cardiologist. I had to go back to ER before seeing cardiologist because my chest pain was so intense.
Chest pain likely won't be enough to justify the huge costs of a malpractice case, but discuss it with a local malpractice lawyer. Use Avvo's lawyer finder tool.
I do not believe you have provided enough information and medical negligence is very fact driven--please consult with an attorney in your state to get a proper opinion--best of luck.

Nothing in your question makes me believe you have a viable medical malpractice claim against your doctor. Did you suffer any new and permanent injury because of the doctor not prescribing you pain medication for chest pain? That is what would be required for a lawyer to even look into a possible claim.
