BELLEVILLE — A woman is suing James Douglas Schoen, M.D.; Esse Health Accountable Care Organization, LLC d/b/a Esse Health, and Simply the Breast, LLC d/b/a Advancedtech Breast Imaging Specialists, LLC, medical practitioners, claiming negligence and alleging that insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.

Deborah Reimers filed a complaint on May 10 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to provide an accurate report for plaintiff's mammography.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in May 2014, she was diagnosed with grade 3 ductal carcinoma, and says signs of cancer were missed after a June 2013 mammography. The plaintiff holds James Douglas Schoen, M.D.; Esse Health Accountable Care Organization, LLC d/b/a Esse Health, Simply the Breast, LLC d/b/a Advancedtech Breast Imaging Specialists, LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly neglected their duties to provide an accurate report for plaintiff's mammography results, which made plaintiff's condition worse.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants in a sum in excess of $50,000 plus court costs. She is represented by William R. Tapella and K. Lindsay Rakers of Taapella & Eberspacher LLC in Mattoon.
