New Mexico Medical Malpractice Attorneys Curtis & Lucero

Finding a vigilant and committed health care provider

Medical injuries and fatalities related to malpractice, surgical errors, misdiagnosis and other errors are all too common in today’s world. Securing your health and safety is facilitated in large part by the vigilance and commitment of your health care provider in New Mexico. At Curtis & Lucero Attorneys, we understand the complexities of medical malpractice.

Because doctors play such a significant role in your health care needs, it is critical to carefully examine and compare providers before making your selection. Consumer Reports suggests things you could look for to gauge a physician’s attentiveness. These include the following:

  • Time to talk: You should always have ample time to discuss your concerns, ask questions and clarify your understanding of treatment options. Your doctor can demonstrate attentiveness by listening to you and patiently responding to your questions in an informative manner.
  • Type of questions: Pay particular notice to the types of questions your health care provider is asking. If he or she are asking unrelated or vague questions, there may be a lack of genuine care and attention. Reflective questions are a sign that your best interest is a priority and your understanding is desired.
  • Body language: You can learn a lot about your physician’s level of attentiveness by simply observing his or her body language. Behaviors that indicate your doctor’s attentiveness include eye contact, sympathetic head nods and positioning the body squarely in your direction.

By asking questions, clarifying your understanding and bringing a trusted friend or relative with you to appointments, you can encourage your physician to be attentive and vigilant. For more information on topics related to health care provider negligence, visit our web page.
