Maria Kielb, et. al. v. Middlesex Cardiology Associates, P.C., et. al (New Haven Superior Court—filed November 20, 2017) The decedent, Frank Kielb, was 65 years old. He was healthy and active, but experienced some chest pain and pressure upon exertion. His primary physician referred him to a cardiologist who administered a nuclear stress test. When performing the exercise portion of the test, Mr. Kielb could not reach his target heart rate. The test continued and the results were markedly abnormal. The cardiologist who supervised this test deviated from acceptable standard of care in a number of ways but most notably she allowed him to be discharged home rather than transferring him to the hospital for immediate follow-up care. When Mr. Kielb and his wife returned home, he felt light-headed and had difficulty breathing. His wife immediately called 911—Mr. Kielb was having a heart attack. Emergency medical personnel transported him to the hospital but he experienced cardiac arrest and, ultimately, they could not resuscitate him. He suffered myocardial infarction and died as a result of the substandard medical care he received.

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.
