I called my late husband's doctor to request some medical information that would help me complete spousal benefit forms for the Teacher Retirement System. They needed to know if the reason Bob quit his job in Dec 2006 was due to his illness. I asked the doctor to check Bob's file to see when he was first diagnosed with depression/anxiety, or when he had first prescribed him Paxil and Nadolol. I left a very specific message for the doctor and called five days in a row trying to get an answer. On the fifth day, one of the office employees checked my husband's file for me and told me that there was no diagnosis of that type or record of either Rx for my husband. The last time he had been seen was 2006. I have Rx bottles dated 2010 shortly before his suicide. Malpractice or Liability Case?
