A St. Clair County man is suing the doctor and physician's assistant whom he claims misdiagnosed him with a gastrointestinal disease.
Stan and Angie Weller filed a lawsuit Sept. 20 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Dr. Mark Feldman and Claudia Gallagher, a certified physician's assistant.
According to the complaint, Stan Weller was a patient of Gallagher and Dr. Feldman when he was allegedly misdiagnosed with Crohn's Disease and prescribed the corticosteroid Prednisone. Weller claims the doctor and the nurse failed to order a CT scan and never consulted a supervising physician.
The Wellers accuse Dr. Feldman and Gallagher of negligence and ask for more than $300,000 in damages for medical expenses, loss of consortium and court fees.
They are represented by attorney Thomas Q. Keefe, Jr. of Belleville.
