doctor botch two surgeries and another doctor had to fix his mistake . Then gave me the damage implant which pursued me to file a claim
Doctors rarely testify against other doctors in the same city. In many cases, the doctors are in the same medical group. Sometimes, their insurance carrier forbid them to testify against one another. It is unfortunate, but most of the time treating physicians will not testify against negligent physicians because the medical community is very tight.
It is very hard to get a doctor to testify in a medical malpractice case. Your lawyer should know how to find an expert.
