I’ve seen fractures in the health care system, a lack of patient safety, and human nature and arrogance causing people to circle the wagons. I saw doctors come to court and say things that weren’t true. I saw patients come to court and not get justice. After 12 years of this I’ve reached the point where I’ve almost become the investigative reporter instead of the lawyer. There has to be something done about this.
