Local doctor faces medical malpractice suit

By Whitney Brakken | Dec 2, 2013

An Illinois doctor is facing suit over claims she provided inadequate medical care.

John Weldin, individually and as special administrator of the Estate of Patricia Weldin, filed a lawsuit Nov. 18 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Dr. Maysoon Al-Naqeeb, citing the state's survival and wrongful death statutes.

The plaintiff states Patricia Weldin was under the care of the defendant from March 4, 2004 until May 16, 2006.

The complaint states the defendant carelessly and negligently provided medical care to Patricia, including failing to order yearly mammograms and timely diagnose and treat ductal carcinoma of the right breast.

As a result of the defendant's negligence, the suit states that Patricia Weldin died on June 28, 2008.

The plaintiff is seeking more than $50,000 in damages and is being represented in the case by Radtke & Nusbaum.
