Valentino vs. Thomas Jung, M.D., et.al. (New Haven Superior Court – filed October 30, 2015)  For approximately three years, the plaintiff consulted with Dr. Jung at Midstate Gastroenterology Specialists, P.C. for ulcerative colitis. The defendant chose to treat the condition with a class of drugs — called 5-ASA — and known to cause allergic renal interstitial nephritis in the kidneys, potentially causing serious and permanent  damage. The standard of care, along with the manufacturers of this type of drug require simple blood testing for assessing kidney function both before and during therapy while on these drugs.  However, the defendant physician in this case NEVER ordered one blood test for the plaintiff until almost three years after starting them. Furthermore, even after two consecutive tests indicated his patient’s kidney function was in fact being compromised by the drug, Jung continued to prescribe it for several more weeks. Finally, a referral from the plaintiff’s primary care physician to a nephrologist resulted in a Stage III Chronic Kidney disease diagnosis. Due to his gastroenterologist’s total negligence and lack of regard for simple standard of care practices, our plaintiff will likely end up on dialysis by his early 40’s.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
