HUNTINGTON – A Huntington woman is suing Radiology Inc. after she claims it was negligent in recognizing and diagnosing a probable malignant mass.
Drs. Grant D. Petty and Charles M. Siegler were also named as defendants in the suit.
On Oct. 17, 2007, and on Nov. 25, 2008, the defendants failed to recognize, diagnose and detect a probable malignant mass in Mary K. De Los Santos' right breast and failed to recommend immediate post mammogram ultrasound study and/or biology of the right breast, according to a complaint filed Jan. 12 in Cabell Circuit Court.
De Los Santos claims because of the defendants' failure, she was required to have a right and left breast mastectomy.
The defendants failed to exercise a degree of care, skill and learning required or expected from reasonable, prudent health care professionals, according to the suit.
De Los Santos is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by William D. Thompson.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.
