Man alleges dermatologist performed different procedure than what was agreed upon

ORLANDO – A patient has filed suit against a dermatologist over allegations a different procedure was performed on him than what he agreed to.

Julius David Odom III filed a complaint on April 26 in the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida - Orange County against Sand Lake Dermatology Center PA and Christopher P. Crotty MD citing vicarious liability and medical negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff sought treatment from Crotty in July 2014 for a skin lesion on his scalp, which was confirmed to be squamous cell carcinoma. He consented to the MOHS procedure to remove the affected area but the defendant allegedly instead did an electro dissection and curettage without prior consent from plaintiff. As a result of defendants' negligent treatment, plaintiff alleges he suffered invasive surgical procedures resulting in pain, suffering, disability, permanent scarring, emotional trauma, medical expenses, inconvenience and injuries.

The plaintiff holds Sand Lake Dermatology Center PA and Crotty responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide proper, competent and adequate medical diagnosis and treatment, failed to provide full information to patient, and failed to secure consent before performing procedure.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for damages of more than $15,000 plus interest, attorney's fees and costs. He is represented by Jason J. Recksiedler of NeJame Law PA in Orlando.
