Medical malpractice can destroy a patient’s health and lead to financial loss and reduced quality of life. A patient can help to avoid a gynecologist’s mistake by effective communication with him or her.When speaking to a gynecologist, it’s normal for some women to feel vulnerable and intimidated. But it’s essential to be open, honest and detailed to prevent the doctor making a mistake.You must also truthfully answer all your doctor’s health questions. Some people are reluctant to reveal certain things for fear of being judged. But your gynecologist needs accurate information to effectively treat you.Your healthcare provider needs to know everything relevant to your condition. You know your body better than anyone else, and feeling it’s “off” is something your doctor should know. Write down your symptoms and any questions you may have. This will help you prepare for your conversation with the gynecologist. If the gynecologist says something you don’t understand, ask him or her to explain again in laymen’s terms.There are some unfortunate instances though, where you may do everything in your power to effectively communicate with your OBGYN, and a gynecologist mistake still ensues. This could range from misdiagnosis of an illness to an incorrect drug prescription.
