Malpractice suit launched against four doctors over treatment at Campbellton Regional Hospital


A woman from the Restigouche Region has launched a malpractice suit against four doctors over her treatment at the Campbellton Regional Hospital.

In court documents, Alice Aube alleges she underwent a radical right-breast mastectomy because her cancer was not diagnosed in time to avoid surgery.

CBC reports surgeon Dr. Gabor Fuzesi and radiologists Dr. Harjeet Bajwa, Dr. Allister McGowan and Dr. Arifa Sadaf are named in the suit.

The doctors deny the allegations, which have not been proved in court.
