BLACKSTONE v. APPLEGATE, M.D.

This medical negligence case involved allegations of failure to diagnose breast cancer by the patient’s gynecologist. He successfully argued at trial that he reasonably relied on the radiologist’s interpretation of the mammogram he suggested, and timely ordered appropriate follow-up clinical examination, which ultimately established breast lumps. Since the patient continued to be followed and was rechecked on an appropriate, timely basis the jury agreed that no fault for the delay could be attributed to the gynecologist. The patient was an employed mother of two, with an executive level job.
