Failure to Diagnose Aortic Dissection Leads to Death

Attorney and Senior Partner Kerry D. Staton discusses the case of a 43-year-old man who went to his primary doctor with complaints of chest pain and symptoms of a heart blockage. The doctor failed to do a Cat Scan or MRI, and negligently sent the man home. Because the physician did not follow protocol and issue the appropriate tests, the patient died less than a month after visiting his doctor. This is a clear case of misdiagnosis.
