Dallas doctor sued by patient
Posted on Thursday, July 5th, 2012
An 81 year-old Dallas doctor has been slammed with a lawsuit by a former patient who claims he needed emergency surgery following a procedure, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Texas Medical Board records show that the doctor’s medical license was suspended eight years ago after he failed to pass a test of basic clinical knowledge at least two times. He eventually passed the test two years ago and was approved to practice medicine again.
The former patient says his hernia operation lasted eight hours and that he suffered from extreme pain, a severed colon, the loss of a testicle, and internal fecal matter spillage. He says the doctor did not use anesthesia.
