Patient’s Claims of Negligence to Washington Medical Commission Rejected

In August 2019, Justin Steiner represented a geriatric medicine physician in an investigation by the Washington Medical Commission. The patient had reported to the Commission that the physician had failed to provide an appropriate treatment plan, diligently oversee the patient’s recovery, and follow-through on treatment recommendations. After Justin provided a comprehensive response to the Commission with the physician’s assistance, the Commission found no violation of the standard of care and closed its investigation.
