A woman is suing over claims she was mistreated by a certain physician and physicians’ group of an Illinois-based health care center.
Mozelle Krumke filed a lawsuit Aug. 17 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Vipul Patel M.D. of the Foot and Ankle Clinic in conjunction with John M. Abran M.D. and 4Path Ltd. citing negligence.
According to the claim, Krumke suffered medical malpractice while in the care of Dr. Patel and the aforementioned doctors and organizations when she was wrongfully diagnosed multiple times from a series of office visits from Nov. 30, 2011, to Aug. 16, 2013, with a hematoma in her left heel – which ended up being diagnosed as melanoma – causing her to sustain injuries of a personal, permanent and pecuniary nature.
Krumke is seeking damages of more than $50,000 plus costs from the defendants' negligence to not properly treat her, the claim states.
She is being represented by Timothy P. Rhatigan of Rhatigan Law Offices in Chicago.
Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015L008382.
