Dr. Nick Caro's attempt to sue a former patient for $2Mil FAILED!

Dean Kantis explains his story at http://www.lifeafterlasik.com/.

Case Dismissed!!

Nick Caro, MD  & Saint George Vision Laser SIEZED!

In addition to Dean, There have been 50+ lawsuits filed against Dr. Caro. Please note that although some or most of these cases may have been dismissed for ‘lack of merit’, or withdrawn, the fact these cases were filed in the first place warrants some questioning of one's professional ability (?). The state of Illinois seems to think so...

Dr. Nicholas Caro Sued for Medical Malpractice by "N.K."

Plaintiff claimed that after undergoing LASIK surgery on her right eye on April 30, 1999, she experienced difficulties with a serious candida fungal infection which she followed-up with him on several occasions, which consisted of cap cleanings, prescription of several antibiotics and a steroid, until the following June 11th, her last visit. She subsequently had to undergo a corneal transplant.

Dr. Nicholas Caro Sued for Medical Malpractice by "S.W."

These husband and wife plaintiffs are claiming that during one of two, or possibly both bilateral LASIK surgeries performed by Dr. Nicholas Caro on September 22, and October 5, 1999, metallic particles were left embedded in both of Mrs. W's corneas. Although her treatment subsequent to the discovery of the alleged particles was not yet disclosed in this file at the time it was copied, it is possible that she had to undergo corneal transplantation.

Dr. Nicholas Caro Sued for Medical Malpractice by "R.C"

Plaintiff alleged that during her treatment consisting of multiple refractive surgeries to both eyes at St. George Corrective Vision Center between August of 1993 and September of 1997, Dr. Nicholas Caro and/or other personnel affiliated with him, among other things, performed two surgeries that have a well known poor success rate (hexagonal keratotomy and/or automated lamellar keratoplasty), failed to properly inform her about the experimental nature of each surgery performed which ultimately necessitated corneal transplantation, and also didn't inform her that an excimer laser, apparently manufactured by PDI Laser, was not approved by the FDA and that the FDA had denied Dr. Caro's application to use it, and went ahead and used it on her anyway.
