FREEPORT - Seven women are suing Dr. Farouk Y. Khan and the Freeport Health Network for medical negligence, claiming the doctor misdiagnosed them with multiple sclerosis, a chronic, often disabling central nervous system disease.
Dr. Khan gave his diagnoses while working at the FHN Memorial Hospital, which is part of the FHN Network, during 2011 and 2012. The lawsuit indicates that Dr. Khan "holds himself out as a neurologist though he is not board certified in any medical specialty." The lawsuit details that his medical order to the women was that they give themselves daily injections of Copaxone and Betaseron, two drugs intended to reduce multiple sclerosis flare-ups.
But looking at Dr. Khan's records, you would never know that."
"As a direct and proximate result of the negligence of defendant Khan, plaintiff Robert Klaus suffered loss of society, companionship, support, comfort, income, guidance, and services of his wife, plaintiff Maribeth Klaus, at all relevant times herein," the suit says, also requesting more than $50,000 for the husband.
Khan could not be reached.
Another FHN representative said that Khan is no longer with the network, and the network's website does not list him in its roster of providers. Khan and the network will have a chance to respond to the complaint.
