Is it legal and can I sue my doctor for blatantly lying about her diagnosis of me causing excruciating pain and loss of home, job and even had too give up my son to find out she lied and was sorted in a couple of months where I endured and trusted her.

I was dealing and falling apart emotionally and physically, as all continued too worsen. This went for over 3 years and took a simple repetitive ear ache and being unable too see her too find out she completely lied and was sorted in no time

Hi Naomi,

On what grounds do you believe your doctor lied to you about your diagnosis?

Could it be that your doctor misdiagnosed?

Have you tried complaining to the hospital/practise/Medical Board?
