Doctors are under increased financial pressure to see as many patients
as possible and as quickly as possible. This has resulted in some doctors
not taking the time to listen to their patients. As a result, patients
may be misdiagnosed, symptoms may be overlooked, or patients might be
prescribed drugs without being fully informed of their options, making
you the possible victim of
medical malpractice.

If your doctor is not listening to you, he or she could be endangering
your life. Your doctor’s inattention might make him or her miss
something important, and you could suffer serious harm as a result. As
such, it is important that you take steps to make yourself heard.

The first thing to do is make sure you are very organized and ready for
your appointment. Make a list of specific questions and concerns you want
to discuss with your doctor, and go through each concern patiently and
calmly without getting emotional or upset. If you can do a little research
beforehand to guide you to ask the right questions, it can be very helpful
for your doctor. If you feel your doctor still isn’t listening to
you, it may be time to find another doctor.

If your doctor’s inattention has led to you suffering some type of
harm, you may have a medical malpractice case against your doctor. To
