My youngest daughter had surgery to have tubes placed in her ears late Feb. She started having pain so I took her to her pediatrician per recomendation of her ENT specialist. They said her tube was shifted and pushed back and that she needed to see her ENT. I went through hell and high water for over 2 1/2 mths and couldn't get them to do their jobs to get her into the office. I finally had to switch ENT's for her and now she is going to have to undergo surgery again. This time to place new tubes already (it's only been 6 mths) and to remove her adenoids due to complications with her first set.
Due to everything I went though with the appointments (they never tried to get an auth for her to be seen nor did the office managers call me back) would that be considered neglect on the part of the ENT office?
My daughter is only 3 1/2.

Is there any long term irreversible damage? If the answer is yes I would say you have a case. If the answer is no I would say you don't.

Bless her heart, I also would contact an atty and ask him. I'm not reading any malpractice in your post, just ignorance on the Dr's part and uncaring staff not to get your little girl in for her checkup or repair. Good luck hon and prayers for your little one.
