There is no issue with listening to YOU as a patient. However, if the infectious disiease specialist says that the treating doctor did something wrong  - that needs to be in writing and then identify the specific effect of the doctors actions. You have a VERY short statute of limiations in any med mal case so this needs to be addressed IMMEDIATELY with the specialist. Once you have such a written statement you bring that and your entire medical records to a lawyer for a med mal review.
