A couple suing a Louisiana doctor over alleged medical malpractice, has filed a petition for declaratory judgment claiming the doctor refuses to participate in a medical review panel and refuses to make herself available for a deposition.
Donald and Marlene Parr filed the petition against Dr. Susan McSherry on May 12 in Orleans Parish District Court.
The Parrs filed a malpractice case against McSherry on June 25, 2009, claiming that during a procedure to treat Donald Parr's enlarged prostate in June 2008, McSherry allegedly lost control of a laser and burned a hole through his bladder and rectum. Since the incident, Parr claims he has been hospitalized on multiple occasions and has undergone multiple procedures in an attempt to repair the extensive damage. Parr states his medical expenses to date exceed $400,000.
Parr claims McSherry's refusal to participate in a medical review panel has caused an unreasonably delay in the resolution of his case.
Baton Rouge attorneys Charles R. Moore and Patrick N. Broyles of Moore, Thompson, Lee & Broyles are representing the Parrs.
Judge Ethel S. Julien is assigned to the case.
