    Default Father Died After Medical Appointment Was Rescheduled

    My father died recently from a blood dease he was being treated for.

    His doctor cancelled his appointment and pushed back 8 days.

    My father started getting ill 2 days before his new appointment date a died on the day of his new appointment date.

    I feel that if the doctor kept his original date that this never would have happened.

    Is there any action I could take against the doctor?

    First I would like to express my deepest sympathies to you and your family for the loss of your father.

    What kind of "blood disease" was this and what kind of treatment was your father receiving? Did your father seek any other care when he started feeling ill ?

    Thanks for your response.

    My father was refered to an oncologist by his family doctor because of a high
    white blood cell count, The doctor did'nt know what to put on the death certificate, so we agreed to the cause of death as myeloproliferative disorder.

    He was seeing the oncologist for about 7 month and had 3 blood transfusions
    and was put on medication.

    The oncologist and the family doctor were the only one treating him.

    My father didn't get any other treatment when he started to become fatigued
    1 day before his doctors appointment and that evening he became ill and I called the ambulance and they took him to the hospital and about 5 hrs later he died.
