Re: David McKee, M.D.

Dear Mr. Laurion:

I represent Dr. David McKee, who provided treatment to your father recently.

You have posted on several public websites and in various other communications defamatory statements about Dr. McKee, including false statements of fact regarding Dr. McKee’s treatment of your father when he in Saint Luke’s Hospital. The statements you make about him and comments you ascribe to him, are not true. They cast him in a negative light, have potential to harm his reputation, and are defamatory. Dr. McKee denies making the statements that you attribute to him, or committing the conduct that you ascribe in your web postings.

Dr. McKee is an outstanding physician with a sterling medical record and outstanding history of treating patients. He takes this matter seriously, and I am sure you do, too.

He is prepared to pursue appropriate legal action to preserve his reputation. However, before doing so, he wants to give you an opportunity to correct this matter. Therefore, we demand you do the following:

Immediately remove all web postings about him;

Stop any further web postings or other communication on the internet or otherwise, that are disparaging, defamatory or of any other nature about him.

You do not have the right to disparage and defame him in this way to the public. Therefore, unless the actions set forth above are taken immediately, Dr. McKee is prepared to take appropriate legal action to protect and preserve his rights.

Please get back to me, or have your legal representative or insurance carrier, contact me immediately. Please be mindful that my client has the means and motivation to pursue all available recourse against you as to this matter.

Thank you for your consideration.

Very truly yours,

Mansfield, Tanick & Cohen, P.A.
