Does anyone know if Dan Stickler has ever been sued for malpractice or settled any cases out of court?

you can check with the WVBOM website,(WV board of medicine) it will give you all the info you need, just select search physican and enter his name.
I do know of patients that have been very unhappy with the gastric bypass surgery he performs, and at least one patient tried to claim malpractice.

Do you know if the person who tried to claim malpractice got a settlement or what? I'm asking because I know a lady who is claiming she got millions of dollars from a lawsuit with him, but I can't find anything about it. She is saying she is going to pay cash to a friend of mine for her house in St. Albans that she has for sale and she says she wants to buy at least 2 houses in the same area so her family can all be close to each other. It sounds so bogus to me cause she keeps finding a reason to put off signing a contract--needs to talk with her contractor about what remodeling costs, etc. would be, and how much to put in a pool... I hope it's true but like I said, nothing is on the WVBOM website about Dr. Stickler, but if it settles out of court, would it still be mentioned? Thanks for your help.

The person I know about was a man from outside of Kanawha County. The BOM site will have settlement information if a lawsuit was filed. The only way it will not be on there is if she did not file a complaint (lawsuit) against him. You can mediate prior to filing suit, but it is rare. Also millions of dollars isn't realistic unless someone died or was disabled totally and will have a lot of future medical expenses. Be wary, unless she shows the $ and signs the contract...She will have to give an attorney 40% of whatever she recovers, plus pay back subrogation, meaning paying money back to her health insurance carrier. It is extremely rare for someone to get "millions" in a malpractice suit. I wouldn't believe this amount.

Thanks for all your info/help. I really believe, for whatever reason, this woman is just wasting everyone's time with all her stories, etc. I don't believe this is legitimate, and I don't believe she has "millions" to buy houses. I just feel really bad for my friend, who really had her hopes up that she was going to finally sell her house. Lots of sick, sick people in this world.

Mountain Doo can you describe this lady that offered to buy your friends house. I have been hearing the exact same stories with a realtor friend of mine. My friend has been taking a lady around looking at houses and she is saying that she is expecting a huge settlement from Dr Stickler.

I have never met her but I think her name is Mary??? She has moved on to looking for houses (yes, plural) in Charleston area now. Says she has multi-millions and wants at least 2, possibly 3 houses in the same area for different family members. Last I heard, she was up in the Mt Alpha area. She also keeps switching realtors, I think. Thankfully, she left my friend alone after a while! I thought malpractice had a "cap" now anyways, but she claims about 20 million! Whew! I never hear anything about Dr. Stickler any more and not even sure he is around here. I do know that he declared bankruptcy and so maybe this lady got everything he had... I just think it smells a little fishy.

I'll say it once again. Dr. Stickler did my surgery in 2000 and then later on saved my life when I took Ibuprofen when I shouldn't have (internal bleeding). He is a great guy and doctor. Love him dearly. Shame on that women wanting to sue him. If her surgery didnt work, it was her own fault. I lost over 150 pounds and have still kept it off. Anytime you have any kind of surgery you are taking a risk. He is only human. He does the best possible he can.

I have nothing but respect and love for this man. It pisses me off that people talk bad about him and try to make him a human ATM.

No lawsuits on the board of medicine site. No disciplinary actions on the board of medicine site. If he settled out of court, it will still list it, and it would be a "settlement" on the website.

Perhaps you could alert Dr. Stickler regarding the claims this woman is making. He may wish to accompany you when you next meet with her! He might also have her held accountable for what she is saying? Seems to me she is lying. I am a nurse.

Dr. Stickler did my surgery March 29, 2005. I was almost 400 lbs at the time. Today I weigh 206 but I haven't been able to exercise for 8 years because of chronic back pain. He saved my life and I will be forever indebted to him for his intervention.

People believe what the Board of medicine tells you. I know Dr Stickler personally (family) he's not been involved in any lawsuits in or out of court. This lady could be on a trip of her own for no good to come of it.
