LOGAN – A Raleigh County doctor is being sued after allegedly creating an "alter ego" medical practice to avoid contractual payments and providing patient information, resulting in a breach of contract.
Accelerated Billing Services Inc., doing business as Practice Management Solutions, of Wilkinson filed a lawsuit on Oct. 21 against West Virginia Vascular Institute PLLC (WVVI); Dr. Herbert Oye, Euphemia Oye, and Global Vascular and Wound Care Institute Inc.
According to the claim, the alleged creation of the alter ego practice resulted in a breach of contract by way of Dr. Oye refusing to pay Accelerated Billing Services Inc. the agreed upon 7.5 percent of all reported finances done by WVVI.
According to the suit, Oye created Global Vascular and Wound Care Institute Inc. as an 'alter ego' company to WVVI, operating out of the same location, to avoid fulfilling his contractual obligations with the plaintiff. This breach of contract has caused the plaintiff irreparable damages, the claim states.
The plaintiff requests entry of a preliminary injunction order in their favor. They also seek financial compensation for attorney fees and costs, and all other relief the court deems just. The plaintiff is represented by Edward P. Tiffey of the firm Tiffey Law Practice PLLC in Charleston.
