CHICAGO — A married couple's lawsuit against Aum Guru L.L.C., d/b/a Chicago Institute of Plastic Surgery, and Dhavel Patel, M.D., alleges negligence in medical care.
David Geddeis and Vicki Geddeis filed a complaint on Sept. 9 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to provide proper medical care to David Geddeis.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that from 2012 through 2014, David Geddeis sustained physical injuries which needed further medical attention, following a 2012 excision of a shoulder melanoma and another procedure in 2013. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to follow up on the condition of David Geddeis to make sure that the cancer had not metastasized or to order further testing.
The plaintiffs seek judgment against the defendants in an amount that exceeds $50,000 plus court costs. They are represented by Gregory F. Coplan of Coplan & Crane, Ltd. in Oak Park.
