I would try to avoid signing the doctor's agreement, if possible, but I don't think it would prevent an attorney from suing the doctor on your behalf. Several Florida Supreme Court cases have ruled that these agreements are unenforceable because they invalidate the Florida MMA (Medical Malpractice Act). That law requires mandatory non-binding arbitration, whereby the patient can sue the doctor if they don't agree with the arbitration decision. Apparently, these doctor agreements are trying to invalidate the law.

I have a friend who was so poorly cared for by a specialist at Ocala Eye that he is now blind to a great extent and only recently found out that there was much that could have been done to prevent his being where he is now. The poster who said that the document may have come about following several malpractice issues may be right on. What I have heard is that THE best practice for cataract surgery in TV is St. Luke's in LSL, 352-350-8484.

I believe St Luke's uses their clearwater office for some procedures, Id rather stay in the Villages.
