I don't know about you,but I was alway taught and even doctors will tell you,IF you don't agree with your diagnosis.Get a second and even third opinion.There was quite a few days before a second opinion was sought.Good luck and I hope you got your second opinion,because you would get nothing from me without the second opinion.Something as serious as that I would have been seeking a second opinion.sorry for your lost

I went to OU in the 80s and my kids are there now. Thankfully, the clinic associated with the med school is in-network for Anthem, so my kids go there if they get sick -- or better yet, they call the local doc, provide their symptoms, and they're accurately diagnosed over the phone. Hudson missed diagnosing my mono prior to spring break, and it appears things have only gotten worse.

Illnesses usually start out quite benign and insidious. You get fevers and chills here and there. Aches and pain as well. Any practitioner will see during high flu season a good 10-15+ students a day with similar complaints. Meningitis is so scary because it is so easily mistaken for the flu, and it progresses fast -- in a matter of hours. The patient that presents to clinic and is examined may not be the same patient presenting to the ED at a later time. The same thing with necrotizing fasciitis. Though these situations are tragic, it will be difficult to prove negligence on account of these providers.

Really, Linda? Both of these incidents happened before the so-called Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was passed in March 2010.
