Indiana Cardiologist Faces Multiple Malpractice Complaints

The medical records for one patient, 70-year-old John Pflum, of Noblesville, Indiana, show that Edward Harlamert, MD, performed 44 heart catheterizations and inserted at least 41 stents between 2004 and 2013, according to an investigation by WTHR 13News in Indianapolis that was published December 14…, Megan Brooks, Dec 2022


“There is not a single scenario I can think of where doing this level of stents and angiograms would be justified or make sense. I have never seen this happen in the course of my medical training or my medical career,” Payal Kohli, MD, cardiologist and medical director of Cherry Creek Heart in Denver, told 13News.


In a statement, Harlamert’s attorneys told 13News that Harlamert has “always been committed to providing quality care to patients” and that he treated his cardiology patients “based on their unique circumstances, his expertise, and the tools available.
