Tulsa, the second-largest city in Oklahoma with a population near 400,000, calls itself a place of southern comfort combined with cosmopolitan living. The comfort part means southern style living at its best. The cosmopolitan part indicates that Tulsa has all the amenities of twenty-first-century progress … and that means an occasional glitch, such as the need for a Tulsa Medical Malpractice Attorney.

It can mean that a medical professional did not give the correct diagnosis of a medical problem, that the doctor’s treatment of a medical problem was incompetent and not up to accepted standards, OR that the professional did not give the opportunity for informed consent, meaning he or she did not inform the patient of possible treatment risks.
