Am I able to sue?
I had been having some unusual vaginal issues so I went to the on/gyn. I wasn’t able to see my doctor so I make an appointment at another location with a different doctor. After he examined me he said my situation looks like BV so he prescribed me antibiotics. I requested to get tested for STDs. He called me two days later to tell me I have Trichomoniasis, he dated they the medication he sent to my pharmacy should also take care of this. Two days after that he calls again to inform me that I also tested positive for Syphilis. He stated I need to see an infectious disease specialist, he also stated he will report me to the Center for Disease Control by law he has to. Long and behold I got a call from the CDC the SAME day asking me to come in and if I didn’t go voluntarily they will find me and have me police escorted to their office. So I went the same day. When I got there they took blood for a bunch of test and then examined me for Syphilis symptoms (which I had NONE) and proceeded to inject me with a shot of Penicillin. A week later I get a call back from the CDC stating they all me test came back negative and I should be good. The same day the CDC called me I went to get a second opinion from another doctor in a different state. Those results also came back negative. The CDC stated they’re unsure as to why my original test came back positive. This all happened in New York btw. Am I able to take legal action for the mishap of the doctor and my troubles and distress?

Not really, you tested positive.

Medical and blood tests frequently get false positives. You have no legal standing.

I don't see any negligence on the doctor's part, so you have no legal case.

No. That's life. Sometimes it's wonderful and sometimes it sucks. The doctor was not negligent. In fact, he was pro-active.

Of course you can sue, but can you win? The chances of that are slim to none. Let this be a warning sign to you, and thank the good Lord you didn't have syphilis, this time.
