Often, patients find out that they have been misdiagnosed in one of two ways. Either they start to suspect that their condition is not progressing the way that their doctor advised that it would, or a doctor catches it in a subsequent medical examination or test.

Either way, there are two things that you should do when you, or a medical professional, suspect that you might have been misdiagnosed. First, get a second (or third) opinion. It is important to see another doctor for a full examination and diagnostic testing. The doctor you see for a second, or even a third, opinion should be independent from the doctors you saw before. Be honest about all of your symptoms and do not speak badly about your previous doctor. The purpose of the second opinion is to get the diagnosis and medical care that you need, not to seek justice for the wrong that has been done.

Second, call a New York medical malpractice lawyer and explain what has happened to you. If you have been hurt by a medical misdiagnosis in New York or New Jersey then the New York City injury lawyers of The Pagan Law Firm may be able to help you.
