Gary: Do you have a malpractice claim if the doctor was a jerk or had bad bedside manner?
Joel: No, that’s not the basis for a medical malpractice claim.
Gary: What about when you have a condition, as you said, the doctor didn’t cause that, and the patient doesn’t get the most optimal result? Is that something you encountered?
Joel: Absolutely, that’s something that I encountered. There are many times especially when it comes to things like plastic surgeries or things of that nature that can leave maybe a scar or a less-than- perfect result, a less-than- optimal result, and the client is upset about that, but it’s important to remember that just because you didn’t receive the optimal result that you were expecting, that’s not basis or grounds for a medical malpractice case.
