I reviewed the facts and the medical records for this pleasant lady. Unfortunately, the complaint misrepresents the evidence which was available at the time. I never tell someone definitively they have cancer without a biopsy. Going to Shands was, in our opinion, the best option for her given the various possible diagnoses of her illness. As always, the best decisions are the ones made for the best interests of the patient. In her case, Shands was best. I wish her wellness.
