    Thank you so much Linda. Unfortunately 2 of the doctors you recommended are not on my insurance, and the lawsuit against the other one really concerns me.... Have you any other recommendations? I appreciate your help!!!

    Just curious but I thought all surgeons have lawsuits against them at some point. That's the way this works. It doesn't necessarily reflect on them. They don't all lose these suits.

    With a 25% chance of winning a case over a 5 year average period, and after fees, and taxes, you have better payoff odds on a craps table. One dice roll takes 5 seconds.

    But then again, most lawyers sue because that's what they do. When in doubt, litigate.
