WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A Franklin County jury this week found a Waynesboro physician guilty of malpractice and awarded the family of a woman whose breast cancer he misdiagnosed $790,000, according to court records.
Neither the defendant in the case, Dr. Stephen Rettig, nor his attorney, Peter Curry of Harrisburg, Pa., could be reached for comment Friday. Attorney Edward Chacker of Philadelphia, the plaintiff's attorney, also could not be reached.
The jury, following an eight-day trial before Franklin County Court Judge Douglas W. Herman, found that Rettig was negligent in his treatment of Debra J. Miller, according to the verdict.
