Clear communication is often key to avoiding litigation
Thank you for the article concerning the patient who commenced action for delay in diagnosis of her breast lesion. In my opinion the gynecologist lost control of the situation because of inadequate communication with the patient either on his or her part and/or on the part of the staff.
