Alleged stroke misdiagnosis prompts suit against doctor, medical center

By Robert Hadley | Feb 3, 2016

CHICAGO — A Cook County woman is suing Pro Care Medical Center, claiming they misdiagnosed her stroke.


Yesenia Carrizosa filed a lawsuit Feb. 1 in Cook County Circuit Court against Dr. Alejandra Campos and Pro Care Medical Center, alleging medical malpractice.

According to the complaint, Carrizosa began receiving treatment from the defendants on Feb. 2, 2014. The suit says Campos misread a CT scan of the patient’s brain and failed to diagnose her stroke, delaying treatment. As a result of the alleged negligence, the suit claims, Carrisoza suffered permanent injuries, preventing normal conduct of her affairs and costing her great sums for medical care.

Carrizosa seeks damages in excess of $50,000, plus litigation costs. She is represented by attorney Martin J. Lucas of O’Connor & Nakos Ltd. of Chicago.
