When people go to the doctor, it is with the expectation that they will leave feeling better than when they were admitted. At the very least, they expect to leave with a good understanding of what is wrong with them. However, doctors can make mistakes. They sometimes overlook symptoms, misdiagnose diseases and make mistakes during surgery. These types errors can sometimes result in death or serious injury happen.
