We are the son and wife of a deceased patient diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma on whom Drs. Patrick and Michael Ciccone performed surgery on May 23, 2014, and we believe they showed tremendous negligence which may have prevented this patient from living longer. After removing the patient’s kidney, Dr. Patrick Ciccone told us there was no evidence of metastasis and booked us on our first follow-up appointment in July. On the day of the appointment, neither Dr. Patrick Ciccone nor Dr. Michael Ciccone was available, and instead the patient was seen by another doctor from their practice, Dr. Erol E. Ulker, who did nothing other than to tell him to return in November to see Drs. Ciccone. After a CT scan was performed 4 months following that visit, on November 25, 2014, Dr. Michael Ciccone said the patient’s lymph nodes were enlarged, referred us to an oncologist, and gave us a Surgical Pathology Report (dated June 2, 2014 — only a week after the surgery) to show him. We had been unaware that such a document even existed. After reviewing the Surgical Pathology Report, the oncologist asked if the patient had been taking any medication, and when he learned he had not been prescribed any he was very surprised. The report contains loads of information, including terms such as: “Lymphovascular invasion: Present”, “Tumor grossly extends into the renal vein or its segmental branches”, and “The tumor is grade 3”. Based on the oncologist’s reaction from the report made immediately after surgery, we believe Drs. Patrick Ciccone, Michael Ciccone, and Erol E. Ulker were extremely negligent in failing to prescribe medication for six months straight following the patient’s surgery and for not referring us to an oncologist much sooner, despite knowing the pathology report was very troublesome.
