For those not familiar with the details of the malpractice case that my wife and I have brought against a local surgeon, I offer you a background link.
For those interested in where this doctor’s family fits into the local medical establishment (at least), I offer this link to a story describing the surgeon’s father, the Senior to the Junior, in literal fact.
The linked story describes Senior as a driving figure in the creation of a for-profit medical establishment in our county and relates that after creating the for-profit hospital around which that industry is centered, he was asked to become the first Chairman of the Hospital’s Governing Board of Directors.
And he held that post for thirty years. From 1976 to 2006.
I have researched publicly available documents and records and created a timeline that shows when Junior “failed to meet standards of care” and when and what circumstances occurred that led to a public reprimand from the Texas Medical Board.
Would it surprise anyone that he was found to be a liability to his partners in practice only after Senior retired?
I’m told that the trial is scheduled for late February. That’s more than three and a half years after the original incident.
