Poughkeepsie, NY (PRWEB) January 03, 2012
Wisell & McGee, L.L.P. a New York City law firm specializing in medical malpractice and personal injury matters, represent 109 former patients of Spyros Panos, MD, an orthopedic surgeon formerly employed by Mid Hudson Medical Group in Poughkeepsie, New York. According to JT Wisell, his firm recently filed ten lawsuits against Dr. Panos and his employer, Mid Hudson Medical Group. Those cases are:
In all those cases it is alleged that Dr. Panos departed from good and accepted standards of medical care in the treatment of these patients.
Wisell & McGee settled the matter of Flynn v. Panos and Mid Hudson Medical Group, Index No. 3917/2010 for an undisclosed amount in the 9th Judicial District Supreme Court of Dutchess County, NY. According to Mid Hudson Medical Group President, Joseph Garvey, Dr. Panos “was terminated by our group for not meeting our professional standards.” Dr. Panos surrendered his privileges to practice medicine at both St. Francis Hospital and Vassar Brothers Medical Center.
As a result of an article that appeared in the Poughkeepsie Journal on September 22, 2011, approximately 300 of Dr. Panos’ former patients contacted Wisell & McGee with questions about medical treatment rendered by him. As of December 21, 2011, 109 former patients have retained Wisell & McGee.
Wisell said that many other former patients of Dr. Panos are seeking medical treatment presently to ascertain whether they were also victims of medical malpractice. According to Wisell, filing a class action suit is not appropriate because the cause of the injuries sustained by the victims is not identical.
