Legal Question

Asked on: 1/25/12, 9:06 pm

Was in emergency room for bleeding during pregnancy. I called my ob for a follow up appt to make sure pregnancy was still progressing. I was refused an appointment and told everything was fine and not to waste anyone's time. Well 8 days later I was in er again for the 3rd time for the same thing. Went and seen a different doctor for a follow up and was informed that my progesterone levels were low and that I need to take progesterone to help support my pregnancies. My baby's heart stopped beating around 8 weeks. Which was about 3 days after I was denied an appointment after my second er visit. Had they given me an appt and checked my levels the miscarriage could have been avoided. My question is, do I have a case against the doctors office who refused to give me a an appointment and told me not to waste anyone's time?
