Cohen & Malad, LLP attorneys along with Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. attorneys are investigating claims against Dr. Wai Hung Lee and Dr. Luisto Gonzales for allegedly performing medically unnecessary heart procedures, including cardiac catheterization, cardiac artery stenting, and loop recorder implantation, as stated in the Proposed Complaint. Both doctors practice at Beacon Medical Group, Elkhart Cardiology, Elkhart General Hospital, and Beacon Medical Systems in Elkhart, Indiana.

Dr. Lee has been reported as the number 3 highest-ranked provider of cardiology procedures in the state of Indiana. Both Dr. Lee and Dr. Gonzales are known to have very busy cardiology practices and to perform an extraordinarily large number of procedures in the Elkhart Hospital Cath Lab.

Mr. Blue of Elkhart recently filed suit against the previously mentioned medical doctors, having undergone an unnecessary loop recorder implantation. The patient received a substantial bill from the hospital, which his insurance provider has refused to cover due to the device’s unnecessary nature. “Now I want to know who is going to pay to take this out,” said a worried Mr. Blue.
