SDG Law Firm Partner Thomas R. Davis has been featured in news articles and television broadcasts around the state reporting on a medical doctor who is facing state medical board charges concerning gross negligence in five different cases throughout the state. The story first appeared in Elmira on TV station WENY. You can see the story here. Since then, both the Albany Times-Union and the Poughkeepsie Journal have picked up the story.
SDG Law represents the family of a 50-year-old man who is listed in the charges. The man saw Dr. Denny Pacheco at Vassar Brothers Hospital in Poughkeepsie with symptoms of an impending heart attack in June 2014. Court documents allege Pacheco discharged him, the man got up to leave the hospital when he had a heart attack and died.
“What’s alarming about it is he’s only been a doctor since 2010,” said SDG Law partner Davis. “This is a lot of incidents in a short period of time. Well it’s a lot of incidents for any doctor, but in such a short period of time it’s particularly alarming.”
