PINEVILLE – A Wyoming County woman says her son’s alleged misdiagnosed stomach pains caused complications that damaged his reproductive system.
Christy Lynn Stanley, individually and on behalf of her minor son, filed a lawsuit April 27 in Wyoming Circuit Court against Family Healthcare Associates Inc. and physician assistant Jennifer N. Stewart, alleging medical malpractice.
According to the complaint, Christy Stanley brought her son to the defendant for treatment of stomach pain, nausea and vomiting on March 27, 2015. The suit says Stewart failed to perform adequate tests, misdiagnosing the boy with viral gastroenteritis. When the boy’s symptoms persisted despite the prescription medication Stewart ordered, the complaint states that Stanley took him to another facility where they had to amputate one of his testicles.
Stanley seeks a jury trial and compensatory damages for pain and suffering, ongoing medical expenses, mutilation, aggravation and embarrassment. She is represented by attorneys Kyle G. Lusk and Matthew A. Bradford of Lusk & Bradford PLLC in Beckley.
Judge Warren McGraw is assigned to the case.
