Before you begin seeing a new doctor, conduct research on his or her practice and look for any previous cases of medical malpractice. You can check the New York State Physician Profile for information about a physician’s medical malpractice record. If you believe your doctor performed medical procedures without a license or made grave errors in your care, contact a medical malpractice attorney to discuss your case.
