Most people do not want to pursue legal action against their physician, but if the patient is seriously harmed it may be necessary to hire a lawyer.
Medical malpractice cases are often expensive and difficult. In Massachusetts, the claim must first be reviewed by the Malpractice Tribunal, a panel of three members, one of which is a physician. At the tribunal there must be a doctor, usually a treating doctor, who is willing to state two crucial things: (1) The Defendant doctor or health care provider "deviated from acceptable medical practice"; (2) This "deviation" caused the injuries. Without presenting this evidence to the tribunal, your claim cannot proceed.
