Nope. The standard of care is to start you on an antibiotic while the culture test is performed. when the results get back, you learn if a different pill will work.

This is not malpractice. In addition permanent injuries are necessary to pursue this type of claim. The expenditures for medical care alone dont justify or support these claims
