The story briefly is this – see this article.
Doctor 1: “Your mole is nothing to be concerned about.”
Doctor 2: “Your mole is nothing to be concerned about.”
Doctor 3: “You are cancer free” – a week before the wedding.
Doctor 4: “Your symptoms are nothing more than post-wedding stress.”
The article includes this – “Her husband is on a desperate search for answers.” It’s a pound to peanuts that no answers will be found.
Leah was dealing with a doctor or doctors who don’t know, and perhaps often don’t care, whether what they tell you is rubbish, because they know that you have no way of proving, (at least to the likes of the NSW Health Care complaints Commission,) that what you are claiming is true.
THE ANSWER TO ALL THIS IS REMARKABLY SIMPLE.
GET ANY DOCTOR YOU CONSULT TO CONFIRM ANY ADVICE THEY GIVE YOU IN WRITING.
Send them a letter along these lines – “On such and such a day, in a consultation I had with you, I understand you to have told me blah blah blah, blah blah blah. Have I got this right?”
It will only take you 5 minutes, IF they have an ordinary email address. And if they don’t have an ordinary email address, you know they are making it much more difficult than it should be to get anything from them in writing, or if they do, and they don’t reply to a letter like the one we’ve set out above, and what they’ve told you is important to you, DON’T RELY ON IT FOR A NANOSECOND!!! YOU HAVE NO PROTECTION AGAINST THE POSSIBILITY THAT WHAT YOU’VE BEEN TOLD IS COMPLETE AND UTTER RUBBISH. LOOK FOR ANOTHER DOCTOR.
They may as well have up somewhere, in big red letters – “I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING I MIGHT DO OR SAY.”
