As the eldest son of a so-called “old school“ general surgeon, Armando Lauritano has witnessed firsthand the unfortunate changes in our medical system. The days of house calls, weekend post surgical follow up, and personalized patient service have long since passed as medicine has transformed itself into a managed care corporate megastructure.
Our current medical system has supplanted the time honored mottos of “ Patients First” and the Hippocratic Oath with an overriding importance on the financial bottom line. The tragic consequences of this Healthcare evolution have been borne out by the citizens of our country. While admittedly medicine is not an exact science and some undesirable outcomes are unavoidable, those familial tragedies occasioned by neglect, inexperience, and incompetence are not, and the wrong must be rectified.
Our legislature, buttressed by the financial lobbying efforts of the Medical and Insurance Industries has made it increasingly difficult for all victims of our profit driven Healthcare system. Experience and commitment count in avoiding the traps and potential pitfalls of our Medical Malpractice system.
As a practicing attorney Mr Lauritano has devoted the past 14 years solely to the specialty of Medical Malpractice. He is admitted to practice in both New York and Florida and have been lead counsel in numerous medical malpractice trials across this state.
Mr Lauritano is proud to represent and successfully redress the interests of those that have been injured.
