. . . believed [Dr. Kendrith Rowland] was concealing information from the board about adverse events and mistakes made in trials and preventing the board from reporting them to the government as required.
According to the lawsuit filed by Dr. Suzanne Stratton,
After a Sept. 18, 2008, e-mail Stratton sent to clinic and hospital officials, Rowland and clinic oncologists stating she knows Institutional Review Board reporting "may seem arduous and excessive" but it's required by law, Rowland came to her office angry and told her "everything was okay before" she came to Carle and "you don't know what you're doing and you will fail at everything you do in your life."
None of this surprises me. I was effectively crippled by Carle Clinic orthopedic surgeon Dr. Chris Dangles. He misrepresented the facts to the medical licensing board in Illinois and then proceeded to state under oath that he did not know why I wanted the ankle surgery. According to Dr. Dangles, I talked him into 3 surgeries! All three surgeries failed. I needed 4 corrective surgeries and I have another corrective surgery scheduled for December 2009. This horrible experience began for me in November 2000.
Dr. Chris Dangles still performs orthopedic surgeries at Carle Clinic in Champaign, Illinois.
For a significant period of time, Carle Clinic purported to have a pediatric cancer center. They raised tons of money. And then - boom - one day it was history because the head of the department (Dr. Mark Musselman) decided to return to "regular pediatrics." The head of the department was not board certified in pediatric oncology!
The only newspaper in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois is the News Gazette. The two biggest employers in the area are the University of Illinois and Carle entities. Needless to say, the reporting on Carle's failures are limited. News-Gazette is very protective of Carle.
I pray the Joint Commission investigates Carle and I pray Dr. Stratton eventually realizes that being away from that toxic environment is a blessing from God.
Karma is a serious thing.
