The Boston Medical Group is a chain of men's erectile dysfunction clinics headquartered in Altamonte Springs, Florida, that has been sued at least three times by patients claiming they were permanently injured, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times. The most significant case was filed by a man in DeKalb County, Georgia, who was awarded more than $9 million in compensatory and punitive damages in his 2009 suit against Boston Men’s Health Center, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
In 2011, the Court of Appeals of Georgia overturned the decision in the DeKalb County case due to a technical error in the trial court's procedure, and remanded the case for a retrial, according to the court of appeals decision published at Leagle.com.
In a 2006 case, a man in Illinois sued the clinic for giving him incorrect medical advice that resulted in a debilitating deformation, according to the Los Angeles Times. In 2003, a man in Texas sued the company when he was left in worse condition than when he started treatment. Both cases were settled confidentially before trial. The clinic uses an injection therapy method to treat both erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, which other experts say is appropriate only in certain cases. Its doctors are paid bonuses for signing up patients, reports the Los Angeles Times.
