They Failed to Diagnose Her Breast Cancer NY Medical Malpractice Attorney Oginski Explains
By the time they finally diagnosed her she was stage 3B breast cancer. Find out what her staging would have been if they had picked this up a year and a half earlier which is when they should have. You want to learn what this is all about? Come join me as I share with you this great information. Hi. I’m Gerry Oginski. I’m a New York medical malpractice and personal injury trial lawyer practicing law in the state of New York. Today I’m coming to you from Baltimore, Maryland at the American Association of Justice seminar and now I have a few minutes to share this great information with you. She had originally gone into her gynecologist complaining of a breast lump. And now the gynecologist did.
The absolute correct thing: she sent her off for a sonogram, she sent her for a mammogram, she told her go followup with a breast surgeon. And through a series of miscommunications you know what happened? She fell through the cracks. She went ahead, had the sonogram done but what happened after that? She was told by the radiology facility don’t worry about it you’re too young; you don’t need to have a mammogram. Oh and by the way, that breast surgeon? You don’t need that either. Just go back to your gynecologist, wait for your sonogram results. So that’s exactly what happened here. So now as a result of her gynecologist leaving and now getting the results from one of the people who worked.
In the office (a nurse practitioner) there was a series of miscommunications that led to a delay on getting further followup care. And by the time she was actually diagnosed it was stage 3b cancer. She ultimately needed a mastectomy. Her treating oncologist told her that if this had been detected a year and a half earlier, it would have been stage 1. It would have been localized to the breast. They would have done a simple excision and then she would have needed a mastectomy, she would have not needed all the additional therapies and her prognosis for the future would have been so much better. So why do I share this great information with you? I share it with you to give you an insight and an understanding.
