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.

Patients and families in Fayetteville may understand that any type of surgery can be dangerous. However, patients and families also trust that when complications do arise during a surgery, doctors and other medical professionals will acknowledge that a mistake has been made and will do their best to fix any errors.

Survey reveals doctors are not always honest with patients

When you visit your physician after experiencing abnormal health problems or concerns, you are putting complete trust in your doctor to diagnosis and treat your symptoms as effectively as possible.

Child left blind and brain damaged after doctor's misdiagnosis

Children in North Carolina are treated every day by their doctors for minor illnesses such as colds, the flu and ear infections. But when pediatricians become too comfortable with assuming one's symptoms are a result of a minor illness, they could mistakenly ignore other symptoms that could suggest that a child is suffering from something far more severe than a cold. Failing to properly diagnose a child with an illness could result in further health complications if the child is not treated correctly and effectively.
