CHARLESTON — A patient is suing health care providers, citing alleged unlawful actions.

James Smith filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Charleston Internal Medicine Inc. and Witt A. Durden, alleging that they violated the West Virginia Code.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on three separate occasions between Sept. 17 and Oct. 24, 2018, plaintiff through his counsel requested plaintiff's medical records with written authorization. Plaintiff and his counsel have been unable to review said medical records. The plaintiff holds Charleston Internal Medicine Inc. and Witt A. Durden responsible because the defendants allegedly refused to produce the requested medical records in a timely manner.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order requiring defendants to produce the medical records and award for attorney's fees and costs. He is represented by J. Michael Ranson and Cynthia M. Ranson of Ranson Law Offices PLLC in Charleston and G. Patrick Jacobs of Jacobs Law Office PLLC in Charleston.
