Question of the Day — 2/20/06

Issue: Bill lets doctors say sorry for mistakes: Idaho Medical Association believes patients may be less likely to sue/Associated Press

DFO: I’d like to get a letter ap-hollow-gy from a Local Clown Doctor who misdiagnosed my wife’s apendicitis a coupla years ago — and almost killed her. It’d be nice to know that he realized he blew it. As is, I still consider him a quack and he probably doesn’t know it.

Question: Has there ever been a time when a doctor of yours should have apologized for his treatment of you or someone in your family?
