Oncologist has license suspended, patients left in limbo

People who have cancer expect that they will get the care they need from the oncologists and other people who are on their care team. When this doesn't happen, the cancer might advance or the person might be left feeling miserable when he or she should have been able to be offered some form of relief.

One oncologist in Las Cruces recently had his license to practice suspended due to allegations related to keeping patients' records in an appropriate manner and a failure to provide patients with care that met the standard of care.

The doctor at the heart of this case is current facing two medical malpractice lawsuits. One of these is in Santa Fe and the other is in Las Cruces. His clinic, New Hope Cancer Center, has pretty much ceased to operate; however, a person was there answering phones when the local newspaper tried to make contact with the doctor. The person who answered the phone noted that he wasn't there.

Ultimately, this case hurts the patients. People with cancer who thought that they had found a treatment plan are left without care. It is unknown if these patients are able to get the records that they need to seek care elsewhere.

It is unclear what is going to happen in the cases that are left in the wake of these developments. If any patient suffers harm at the hands of his or her doctor, whether the doctor is an oncologist or another doctor, the patient does have the right to file complaints and seek compensation as he or she feels necessary based on the circumstances of his or her case.
