The Tavares family has filed a lawsuit against Dr. John Stover. We’ve also learned there are four new complaints filed with the State against Dr. Stover bringing the new total up to 16.
According to reporter John Burnett, the family of 24-year-old Kristen Tavares has filed a medical malpractice suit against oral surgeon Dr. John Stover for leaving their daughter comatose following a routine dental procedure. Honolulu attorney Rick Fried represents the family and tells the "Hawaii Tribune-Herald" and "Hawaii News Now" that the family wants "some help for their daughter, who’s at Maui Memorial (Medical Center) and still in a coma. "More importantly", he adds, "I think they want to make sure the administrative rules are enforced…an otherwise perfectly healthy young woman should not go into a coma after being given the level of anesthesia needed to remove wisdom teeth." Aloha, Russ.
