Has anyone heard about the cancer doctor in Detroit who purposely diagnosed healthy people with cancer and gave them chemo and radiation just to make money? The doctor has pleaded guilty, so it really did happen. For each of his charges, each case where he did this to a patient, the doctor admitted in court that he knew treatment was not medically necessary. http://www.freep.com/story/news/loc...cer-doctor-fighting-keep-feds-email/15716679/ This doctor was widely regarded as a very good doctor and had a large practice, so the community was greatly shocked by the allegations and charges and his guilty plea and admissions of guilt. I can only feel horror and anger on the part of the patients and families that he has harmed, as well as for the families and future patients of doctors who will be afraid to get treatment for serious illnesses because they are afraid that their doctor will be like this one. We have had a few medical threads lately, so I thought some of us might be interested in this. What do you think that we, as patients, should do to protect ourselves from doctor error, accidental or otherwise?
