A doctor is being sued over claims a patient received inadequate medical care that resulted in serious pain and financial loss.

Marc Fraid filed a lawsuit Oct. 8 in Cook County Circuit Court against Dr. Prakasam Kalluri, individually and as agent of Rush University Medical Center.

Fraid claims that Kalluri failed to do proper pre-operative imaging of his spine, and consequently failed to detect a spinal syndrome. He also alleges that Kalluri did not properly communicate with him during or after his surgery.

Fraid is seeking damages in excess of $50,000 and is represented in the case by J. Matthew Dudley of Dudley & Lake LLC.
