A woman from Houston alleges that a group of medical companies failed to provide her medical records after she was implanted with a spinal cord stimulator in 2017, reports SE Texas Record.

The complaint states that the woman has been trying to obtain a copy of her medical and imaging records.

The defendants allege they have none of the records that the plaintiff has been requesting.

The complaint, filed Aug. 12, names multiple defendants in the suit, alleging breach of statutory duty, breach of contract, conversion and fraud. 

The defendants include anesthesiologist Phillip Phan, MD, US Pain & Spine Institute (Houston), Waterway Medical Management (The Woodlands, Texas) and Kent Olsan, president of WMM.

The woman is seeking attorney fees, court costs, all equitable relief and interest.
