For many Arizona women who suffer from endometriosis, finding treatment or even getting an accurate diagnosis can be difficult.

Medical mistakes are alarmingly common in Arizona and across the country. Some cases that have appeared in recent years provide a sobering reminder of the importance of avoiding such mistakes.
In one case, a 36-year-old Arizona man with a brain injury died after ingesting unopened ketchup packets, plastic bags and paper towels while in the care of an assisted living facility.
Being in a serious car accident can mean lifelong injuries for some. Especially if you have suffered any brain trauma. A TBI (“Traumatic Brain Injury”) can lead to further complications. Sometimes a TBI has irreversible damage. This can be devastating for both the accident victim and his or her family.
While most doctors in Arizona and across the United States are good at their jobs, some can and do make mistakes. Unfortunately, their mishaps can lead to serious injury or death. For example, one man in West Virginia was not given proper anesthesia before surgery for abdominal pain and was awake during the procedure.
Arizona residents may be surprised to learn how common a misdiagnosis can be for doctors. Incorrect diagnoses can even be made for common diseases. Part of the problem is that some common illnesses share symptoms, making it difficult to distinguish the conditions from each other.
