More patients ready to testify against oral surgeon

Key ruling due this week in trial

August 12, 2008

With the malpractice trial of Dr. Patrick Collins going into its sixth week Monday, the question of whether additional patients can testify who say they also were harmed by the Spokane dentist remains unresolved.

Mary Schultz, the lawyer for plaintiff Kimberly Kallestad, has told Spokane County Superior Court Judge Michael Price she has other patients "waiting in the wings" to rebut Collins' claims of a near-perfect success rate in open-jaw surgeries, while defense lawyer John Versnel III has promised to match every unhappy patient with a satisfied one. Price will rule on the issue this week.
