Woman to Woman physician Dr. Neelam Gandhi checks a patient record at the facility in Crystal Lake om Monday, Jan 11, 2016. Gandhi has gone through three malpractice lawsuits over the course of her career, stressful events that often lend themselves to self blame whether it's deserved or not, she said. Physicians with her speciality, obstetrics and gynecology, faced more than 10 percent of the malpractice lawsuits filed each year, according to a 2011 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The average for all physicians was 7.4 percent.
