A man accuses dermatologist of using a product that led to scarring and diminished vision.

CHICAGO — Two men are suing Dermatology & Dematologic Surgery, Ltd. and doctor Jeffrey Berti, M.D., citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries and negligence, after the use of a prescribed acne treatment allegedly left one of them with diminished vision. 

Anthony Simboli and James Simboli filed a complaint on Nov. 16, in the Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they failed to provide proper medical care to Anthony Simboli.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege Simboli suffered physical injuries including scarring and diminished vision after the defendants allegedly failed to inform him about the potential harmful effects of Bactrim 800mg DS, which the doctor had prescribed for treatment of acne.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendant in an amount that exceeds $50,000. They are represented by Edward W. McNabola of McNabola & Associates, LLC in Chicago.
