In April I saw the eye doctor and when I told him that my husband had died of renal cell carcinoma he told me that it was contagious and that I needed to get checked out immediately. I didn't know what to think. He told me that his friend an oncologist, had died of kidney cancer from seeing so many patients with the disease. He had me in tears, I told him to stop talking about it to me but he persisted. He said that he knew what he was talking about. Two assistants were with us in the exam room and witnessed the exchange. I was crying and rattled, I left the exam room emotionally shattered. I made an appt. with my PCP who told me he has never heard of such info about kidney cancer and it was wrong information. I have filed a complaint with the attorney general.Do I have a case against this doctor?

A cruel and tasteless joke. Cancer is not contagious. Damages are not consequential enough to warrant representation but feel free to confirm with local counsel.
I'm sorry, but he was pulling your leg, and it wasn't nice. Put it behind you.
Sounds like you did what you needed to. Any question here?
