When Fayetteville residents experience abnormal symptoms that could indicate that there is something seriously wrong with their health, they turn to their physicians and other medical experts for help. After all, it is the duty of doctors to carefully analyze each patient's unusual symptoms and to perform any necessary tests in order to rule out a serious disorder or to make a proper diagnosis.
When a doctor deviates from the standard of care in North Carolina, he or she puts the health and lives of patients at risk. Failing to monitor a patient after surgery, surgical errors, medication errors and failing to properly diagnose a patient are all serious acts of negligence that could cause patients to suffer further injury or death. But misrepresenting one's professional and educational experiences or quality of research could also be considered a form of medical malpractice.
