An adolescent medicine physician is a doctor who specializes in the care of adolescents who have entered puberty and are between the ages of 9-14. An adolescent medicine physician can be a primary care doctor with a mix of gynecology, endocrinology, sports medicine, nutrition, dermatology and psychology. Most adolescent medicine physicians are pediatricians or family medicine physicians. When an adolescent medicine physician's level of medical care, skill or treatment falls below the standard of care and inflicts permanent injury or death to a patient, medical malpractice may have occurred. Unfortunately, even the best adolescent medicine physicians, doctors or clinics can commit errors and mistakes that may result in serious injuries or wrongful death.
Adolescent medicine physician malpractice and negligence may include:
- Delay in Diagnosis or Diagnostic Errors
- Failure to Diagnose
- Failure to Chart Causing Injury
- Failure to Document Clinical Findings
- Failure to Monitor
- Failure to Treat
- Medication Error
- Standard of Care Violations
