Patient alleges doctors failed to diagnose breast cancer

By Michael Abella | Dec 4, 2016

EDWARDSVILLE — A patient is suing Maryville Radiology and several doctors for allegedly failing to diagnose and treat her breast cancer.

Julie Knight and Craig Knight filed a complaint on Nov. 28 in Madison County Circuit Court against Tommy Hill, M.D., Terry Burk, M.D., Maryville Radiology Group Ltd., and Southwestern Illinois Health Facilities Inc., alleging medical malpractice.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that a result of the defendants' acts and omissions, plaintiff Julie Knight's breast carcinoma went undiagnosed and untreated.

As a result, she allegedly suffered permanent pain, mental anguish, disability and continuing medical related expenses.

The plaintiffs allege the defendants deviated from the standard procedure of medical care, failed to timely diagnose and treat Julie Knight's breast carcinoma, failed to timely obtain a biopsy and failed to order additional diagnostic studies.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendants in excess of $75,000, plus costs of this suit. They are represented by Thomas Q. Keefe of Keefe, Keefe & Unsell PC in Belleville.
