Woman Suing Surgeon over Temporary Tattoo
July 16, 2008
Elizabeth Mateo discovered the rose below her panty line the next morning.
Lawyer Gregg Shivers says she was extremely emotionally upset, especially because her surgery was on her back.
Dr. Steven Kirshner’s lawyer, Robert Agre, tells The Philadelphia Inquirer his client does not deny leaving the mark. The lawyer says the doctor does it on patients to improve their spirits.
Mateo is seeking punitive and compensatory damages.
