Misdiagnosis of Gestational Diabetes
Self-verified patient of Dr. Karishma A Anik - Posted on September 5th, 2015
I have been seeing Dr. Anik during my pregnancy with the knowledge that I would probably transfer to a midwife who delivers in NJ since that is where I live. The care has been good, but it being my first pregnancy, I would have appreciated a warmer bedside matter and more information about what I should be doing during my pregnancy beyond telling me what the next test is. Right before taking the steps to transfer to my midwife, I failed the 1 hour glucose test (barely), and had to take the 3 hour glucose test. I got a phone call the next day from Dr. Anik telling me I had also failed the 3 hour test. I was in shock--my diet and exercise routing is pretty good, and this diagnosis did not make sense. I was referred to a nutritionist and a different doctor to go over my eating habits and to give me the device to check my blook sugar after every meal. I asked the nutritionist to give me the actual glucose numbers that would have been acceptable during the 3 hour glucose test. After seeing her, I called Dr. Anik's office to have them email me the actual results of my test. They emailed me a print out with my numbers, and all of them were lower than the numbers the nutritionist had given me. However, there was a computer glitch that marked two of my glucose readings as "high" even though the actual numbers were lower. ESSENTIALLY, DR. ANIK DID NOT LOOK AT THE NUMBERS AND INTERPRET THEM, SHE JUST LOOKED AT WHAT THE COMPUTER SAID AND MISDIAGNOSED ME WITH GESTATIONAL DIABETES. Later on that day, I saw the other doctor that I was referred to, and brought this to her attention. She took a look at it, and told me that she had to agree with me. She called Dr. Anik, and they found out that yes, in fact, I had been misdiagnosed, but blamed it on the computer rather than human error. I still have not received an actual phone call from Dr. Anik apologizing for this error. This error caused me a tremendous amount of stress, emotional duress, and also took me out of work for a day. I understand that we may have become too dependent on computers and machines, but as a doctor one's job is to look at the numbers and interpret them. The patient shouldn't have to feel like they have to double check the doctor's diagnosis because of negligience.
