Modesto Bee

A Modesto physician is one of two plaintiffs in a federal lawsuit filed Monday, which challenges a process used by California hospitals to review complaints against doctors.

Attorneys filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in San Francisco on behalf of Dr. Mark Fahlen, a Modesto kidney specialist who saw patients at Memorial Medical Center, and Dr. Hamid Safari, a perinatologist who worked for Kaiser Permanente’s Fresno hospital.
