RadarOnline has just uncovered that Heather’s husband, Terry Dubrow, a renowned plastic surgeon who is no stranger to reality TV in his own right has been sued at least twice by two different patients! See, you go on a reality show and ALLLL your skeletons come dancing out of the closet!
One former patient, Leah Goodman, filed a personal injury lawsuit against Terry and the Newport Heights Medical Center where she was treated. Documents obtained pertaining to the suit, which was filed in March 2011, show Leah claiming she has suffered from “wage loss” along with “loss of earning capacity,” among other financial set-backs because of the injuries she suffered at the hands of Dr. Dubrow’s medical negligence and malpractice!
In the lawsuit filed directly against Dr. Dubrow, Leah is seeking $25,000 in damages as well as unspecified damages for the medical malpractice and general negligence she is alleging took place. Copies of the court documents are below.
Sadly this is not an isolated incident for Dr. Dubrow! Last year, former patient June Hofherr filed a suit against the doctor and the Newport Bluffs Surgery Center claiming that she suffered from complications related to a procedure Dr. Dubrow performed on her.
According to the court documents, “Defendants failed to disclose material risks of the procedure to the plaintiff and thereby failed to fully describe the procedures that were proposed and/or exceeded the scope of the disclosure and thereby failed to obtain informed consent from the plaintiff for said course of care, treatment and/or surgery. Had plaintiff been adequately informed of all the risks of the procedure, plaintiff would not have consented to said procedure.”
Mark Hofherr, who is also filing suit, claims June has been ” unable to perform the duties of a spouse and the work and services usually performed in the care, maintenance and management of the family home,” following the surgeries, adding that she “will be unable to perform such work, services and duties in the future.”
Pretty serious stuff for Dr. Dubrow who I am sure will be performing many day of beauty events on the ladies of RHOC. That’s probably the real reason Alexis Bellino isn’t a fan — she likes to pimp her plastic surgeon on the show!
