These orators were forbidden to take any money for their support. That all changed when Emperor Claudius made advocacy legal and allowed those advocates to get paid.

Published on May 21, 2024 at 8:05 pm in Medical Malpractice.

When you go to the doctor for a health concern, you expect them to look at your health history and perform a thorough examination to determine what is ailing you. But, when your doctor tells you nothing is wrong or prescribes medication for an illness you don’t think is the cause of your symptoms, you might feel discouraged or even scared.

You might then seek a second opinion from another doctor, hoping that they will find the true cause of your illness. And when a doctor misdiagnoses you as well, what options do you have?

In this post, we’ll discuss what the differences are between a misdiagnosis and a missed diagnosis and how serious both types of medical negligence can be to a patient’s health.
