More Dr. Finkelstein...

So, remember my recent post on Dr. Finkelstein?? Well...as of Wednesday December 5th six of 119 of Dr. F's patients tested postitive for Hepatitis B infection and 6 were positive for Hepatitis C infection. Claudia Hutton, a state department representative, was quoted saying that with respect to the hepatitis cases, that although the department "cared intimately" about each patient's disease diagnosis, "what would be the purpose to figure out a second or third transmission except to sue Dr. Finkelstein? That's not the health department's job. That's why people hire attorneys," she said.
