A woman who was treated at Samaritan Hospital in Troy, N.Y. after an automobile crash has filed a lawsuit against the hospital and an emergency room physician in which she claims she suffered serious injuries – including the amputation of “several digits” – as a result of the defendants’ malpractice.

Named in the suit, filed by Michelle Butler of Troy, are Alexander Grinshpun, M.D. and Samaritan Hospital. Grinshpun appears on Google search results as an employee of Emergency Medicine Physicians, which lists the same Troy address as the hospital.

According to the suit, Grinshpun was Butler’s treating physician following the car crash on July 26, 2013. As a result of the alleged malpractice, Butler “…was hospitalized, underwent surgery and amputation of several digits; suffered and still sufferers great physical and mental pain and anguish sustained severe injures; was obliged to and did expend large sums of money for medical aid and suffered lost wages.”

The suit was filed in October 2014 by the law firm Frost & Kavanaugh of Troy.
