SURGEON'S SHORT CUTS

posted October 10, 2011

Update! Brace yourselves. A class action lawsuit was just filed today against the Dr. Howard Farland of Highland Park.

Earlier today, we reported that Dr. Howard Farland was the focus of an investigation by the State's Attorney's office for medical fraud.

Lockhart Gardner filed the suit on behalf of ten former patients of Farland late this morning. Curiously, the SA's investigation, earlier rumored to be wrapping up, is now said to be far from finished. Lockhart Gardner apparently lost their patience -- just like the doc! � and decided to proceed with the class action suit even before the State's Attorney's office concludes its investigation into Dr. Farland. To which we can only shrug and say, suture self!
