Don't believe charges in lawsuit

To the editor:

After reading Mrs. Meinzinger's lawyer's article, I must deny all her claims. I am sorry for her loss, but she is completely wrong. Everyone who undergoes surgery has to sign a release and understand the potential dangers.

Dr. Sandefur is an extraordinary surgeon who has performed eight surgeries on my husband and myself, and we trust him completely. Baker City is a small town that is fortunate to have the very best in the Northwest in him.

Dave Loper is a wonderful, caring and completely competent professional with over 30 years' experience. He is a Christian family man with an excellent reputation. Dave has assisted Dr. Sandefur in seven of our surgeries. We directly requested him and still have complete confidence in him.

If something happened to her husband during surgery, I strongly feel that it was through no fault of either of these men: they are both professionals.

It appears that Dave has been made the "fall guy" in this. Consequently he has had to give up his longtime profession without the hospital's backing through this terribly unfair charge and lawsuit.
