You never know

You never know

Postby nance619 » Wed Aug 03, 2011 3:21 pm

I've been trying to check out different surgeons in the metropolitan New York area. So I went to sites like Health Grade and of course have been reading your reviews. Then I've gone to the New York State Civil Supreme Court to see if there have been any malpractice suits against these docs.

Doctors can get rave reviews here (not to say anyone is wrong about their experiences) and a site like Health Grades can show the surgeons as squeaky clean. (As a matter of fact no one I researched on Health Grades seemed to have ever been sued.) BUT when you look up the court records, ALL but one that I researched have had malpractice suits that have been settled or are pending. Some had as many as eleven and some as few as one. As a matter of fact, the one doc that didn't have any malpractice suits did a breast reduction on my daughter years ago and placed her nipples/areolas way too high. Today someone might sue because of that.

I'm interested in hearing comments from you about this situation. Knowing all this doesn't make choosing a doctor any easier or safer.

Hi Yassie,

Here is the website. http://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/webcivil/FCASMain

It took me a while to figure out how to navigate it. If you get lost, pm me. Fascinating how many lawsuits there are against the "finest", "best" docs. There is also a website that tells you when a doctor's license as been revoked, suspended, or the doc put on probation.

Honestly, you don't know.I found that a surgeon I used nine years ago, has had 11 lawsuits against him. That seems excessive though the results of my surgery were very good.

Best of luck in your search.
