Post: CAN I PUT A LAWSUIT IN AGNIST MY DOCTOR?
Posted by Yvonna on 4/29/09
Hello. My name is Yvonna McCarthy and on Friday the 24th
Doctor Jon Miller was suppose to take out an ingrown toenail
on the OUTSIDE of my LEFT TOE and burn it so it don't grow
back. Instead he took it out on the INSIDE of my LEFT TOE
and burnt it. I was there as well on the 17th to get checked
and the doctor gave me an Antibiotic for the infection. The
infection was and still is on the OUTSIDE of my left toe. I
went to the office and got a copy of my records from the
17th and 24th. It says on the records on the day he did the
surgery that he took out the "LATERAL" part of my left toe.
I didn't know what "LATERAL" meant so I called the clinic
and the office told me that "LATERAL" means the nail on the
outside. So he did one thing and his records says another! I
know this is just a toenail BUT he DID mess up because he
did the surgery on the wrong side of my toe and the side he
did do the surgery on was fine. There was nothing wrong with
it at that time. When I went in to see him on the 17th I
told him about all the ingrown nails I had in the past and
the side he did surgery on was an ingrown in the past but I
had it taken care of by another doctor. It was not bothering
me nor was not infected or anything. It was fine!!! Do you
think I can file a law suit against him? If so, Do you have
numbers for any attorney's that only take money if I win?
