Missed cancer diagnosis due to failure to perform appropriate randomized biopsies.

This was a medical negligence case against a gastroenterologist and color-rectal surgeon. The defendants failed to perform appropriate randomized biopsies during the plaintiff’s colonoscopies, despite being informed about the patient’s Crohn’s history. They consequently missed the opportunity to diagnose pre-cancerous or early stages of cancer, thus enabling the cancer to grow and spread within the patient’s body. (Attorney Paul O’Connor handled the case.)
