I sent this email to attorney Steve Phillips of Pincus & Currier, LLP on September 11th, 2012:
I asked Dr. Wolf if she would share her email address with me and she said that she would not. She said that because of the state of Florida’s broad and liberal public records laws, she did not use her email for any work-related issues. I understand and respect her decision in that regard.
I know, however, that you have her email address. You told me that you forwarded an email from me to her, and she confirmed that she had received that email.
I am asking you to please forward this email (or at least the relevant information below) to her as well.
I did a Google search this evening for:
Risperdal “pulmonary embolism”
Google suggested that I instead search for:
Risperidone “pulmonary embolism”
That search yields about 176,000 results. The very first two results are to articles published on PubMed.gov, the website of the United States National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health. Both of these articles posit clear links to cardiac arrest precipitated by pulmonary thromboembolism associated with risperidone. One of the articles states, “the data suggest that patients receiving risperidone […] are at risk for acute pulmonary thromboembolism, even if otherwise healthy.”
You can read both of those articles using these links:
Thank you sincerely,
Steve replied to me at 10:34 AM on September 12th:
I will get her the info for her consideration.
In case we have to sue the nursing home and use Dr. Wolf as an expert, I don’t want you sending anything to her. We need to keep you isolated from her as much as possible so her opinions are not tainted. If you have something, send it to me and I will forward it to her.
I replied to him almost immediately with:
Okay. You got it.
At 1:10 PM he wrote me to say:
Got a response from her.
She is looking into it.
