ROBERT MIRSKY MD
It is not easy to bear the loss of a loved one. I know this because it took time before I came to overcome the demise of my father. When he got confined in the hospital, the diagnosis of the attending physician was he was suffering from pneumonia. However, on the second day of his confinement he died. The final diagnosis of the cause of his death was due to rheumatic heart disease. I was outrageously mad at the physician who attended over the initial confinement of my father. Had he referred the results of the medical laboratory exams to a heart specialist my father would not have died at an early age of 57. Doctor referrals can now be made online to doctors whose complete profile are posted online just like what Robert Mirsky MD did. Had this strategy of referral been employed by the attending physician of my father, may be he would have been alive until now. I did not sue the doctor for his incompetence. Suing will not bring back the life of my father but I told her that she may be sued by other patients if she commits the same incompetence, again.
