We will respond with an expert opinion with equal weight. They will review what you’ve done, they will review the chart or charts and then speak with you about what was done, how it was done and what judgment you employed in treating the patients. Remember this is all about the patient’s level of care. You will need to explain the standard of practice as you understand it, the attendant risks of the procedures employed, any complications and how you reacted.
You will need to provide an explanation of how you advised the patient and obtained informed consent. As you can see your charting makes a big difference in why most physicians get charged.
