Wen-Jay Ying v. Emil W. Chynn, M.D., and IWANT2020.Com, Inc., d/b/a Park Avenue LASEK

(Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, Index No. 805071/2024)

Emil W. Chynn, M.D. Is Sued For Medical Malpractice

On March 12, 2024, Wen-Jay Ying (“Ms. Ying”) filed her complaint against Emil W. Chynn, M.D. (“Dr. Chynn”), and IWANT2020.Com, Inc., d/b/a Park Avenue LASEK (the “Defendants’), in the Supreme Court of New York County, State of New York, for medical malpractice arising from LASIK surgery on September 14, 2023, which was performed in New York City.

The complaint alleges that on August 28, 2023, Ms. Ying came under the care and treatment of the Defendants for purposes of consulting and scheduling LASEK surgery.  The complaint further alleges that Dr. Chynn created a marketing campaign stating that “as long as you have good medical insurance, you can get our newer, safer, better, non-cutting LASEK for the same price as their older, cheaper, cutting LASIK (because we will use the money we get from your medical insurance to match their price).” In addition to paying for her LASEK Surgery, Ms. Ying’s insurance was charged by the Defendants for contact lens fitting, evaluations, and eye exams, for the total amount of $593.55.

The complaint alleges that for the surgery on Ms. Ying’s left eye, Defendants allegedly erroneously programmed the surgical laser, and tripled the amount of treatment. As a result of Defendants’ medical malpractice, the complaint alleges that Ms. Ying is left functionally blind in her left eye, and with few, if any, prospects for remediation of her visual problems.
