Background Check for Dr. Thompson

1 Malpractice Claim

  • Settlement  (12/15/2011)
  • Nature of Complaint: OUT OF STATE CLAIM: VA. Reported by the North Carolina Medical Board INCIDENT LOCATION: DANVILLE, VA /// PRACTITIONER COMMENTS: Patient had a history of severe COPD, carotid artery stenosis and ongoing tobacco abuse who presented to me for follow up of a carotid doppler. I ordered a CT angiogram to better define the stenosis. The CT angiogram did not indicate surgical intervention. The CT showed changes in her upper lobes that were consistent with scarring. No mass or nodule was identified in that report. The radiologist also indicated that further studies might be indicated. After reviewing the chart, it was clear that the patient had abnormal radiology in the past and was actively followed by pulmonary for these changes, specifically scarring and bullous changes in the right upper lobe. I called the patient's husband and informed him of the results. She continued with pulm follow up, 1 year later she developed cancer in the right upper lobe and I was accused of missing the diagnosis.
