When New York residents seek medical care, they put a great deal of trust in their physicians. The expectation is that the doctor is the expert who will make the best decisions possible to preserve the patient's life and health.

New York residents may be interested in the case of a woman who was initially diagnosed as brain dead and refused treatment by doctors as a result.
