Nimitt Desai filed a complaint on Sept. 12 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to provide him with proper medical care.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2014 and 2015, he sustained damages and physical injuries as a result of a misdiagnosis of a schwannoma as a lipoma.
