What is the name of your state? NY
I live in NJ but the doctor I went to is in NY. My ob-gyn did not tell me in January that I had an abnormal pap test. In July, I'm at the fertility clinic about to start an IVF cycle when the doctor pulls me into a side room to tell me that I can't start, I had an abnormal pap and that has to be taken care of first. I have the original file from my ob-gyn and on it in her handwriting it says "Colpo" (name of test I required- colposcopy). I was never told this at the time - or any time by my ob-gyn.
I go to another doctor for the colpo and it turns out there is high-risk dysplasia and I needed a procedure (LEEP) to remove it. Now I cannot do IVF for a minimum of 4 months (or attempt a natural pregnancy). Had my doctor handled this in January this could have been over with by now.
Can I sue my ob-gyn? What are my options here? (Obviously, she's no longer my doctor!)
Thanks in advance.
