Lack of follow-up resulted in my mither's death

My mother has an appointment with him on 30 Jan 2013 but won't be able to make it...because she just died of cancer. She had pains in her back and stomach a while back and was away from home and my sister took her to another doctor who said she needed to see her regular Dr and get a CT scan. When she then saw her regular Dr (Soma), he laughed and said she didn't need it. On Christmas Day we had her visiting in TN and she was in pain so we took her to a hospital. Did a CT scan and other tests and found she had terminal liver cancer that had had time to spread. She died on 16 January, only 16 days after being diagnosed. I believe his negligence in following up over a year ago led directly to the death of my mother.
