I truly hope you are not serious about a lawsuit against the hospital where Dr. Sclafani STILL works. We only have words to go by on this site, so I am responding to what you have written. You are angry, as we all are, and understandably so.
But I do not think a lawsuit is going to 'show' anyone anything. Have you considered that this could jeopardize the good doctor's position at the hospital, in many ways, one of which is in terms of his efforts to help us, which includes IRB approval which does not seem like a done deal, because I think the doctor plans to re-apply. This is not over, the battle to get the approval (correct me if I am wrong9.
A lawsuit coming from an angry potential patient could easily be used to justify exactly why they would not let him go forward with a trial.
I am truly sorry you lost your money, I know I would be very upset. And I understand needing treatment immediately as so many do. I do hope you make it to Poland, and I would ask you to reconsider your choice, again, if you are seriously moving ahead to file a lawsuit.
Maybe you could contact Dr Sclafani and see if there isn't some way for him to help you with the money you lost, in terms of the hotel? Maybe he could contact them?

It wasn't an issue that it was non-refundable. It was inexpensive and very close to the hospital. After all, I had a "CONFIRMED APPOINTMENT" - fat lot of good that was worth !!! Since the hospital gave you the go ahead then pulled the rug out from under you, they are the ones who are responsible. I'm going to contact them on Monday and demand that I be compensated. Not a problem if they balk, I'll just hire a extremely competent attorney and sue them. When they lose, and they will lose, they will have to pay court fees and attorney costs. I think I'll add $100K for mental anguish also. Just think, they could have made over $100K per week for the last 2 months or so and now they will have to pay. The lesson to be learned is 'actions have consequences' (especially ignorant ones).
And people wonder why our economy is in the tank. It's stupid decisions like these that make us take our money and spend it in other parts of the world. I already setup going to Poland shortly after Dr. S. was shut down. I need treatment now, not when some bureaucrat decides it's OK (read he/she wont be sued). In the long run, it's much less expensive.
