Mother Claims Correct Diagnosis Could Have Saved Son

Posted: Updated:

ELSA – A Rio Grande Valley family believes their son would still be alive if he’d received a correct diagnosis by his former doctor.

The Rodriguez’s former physician, Edinburg-based Dr. Jorge Zamora-Quezada, went before a federal court judge Tuesday afternoon. He’s accused of allegedly diagnosing patients with various diseases who were otherwise healthy and did not need medical attention.

Eleven-year-old Thomas Rodriguez, who was previously misdiagnosed with lupus, died of leukemia in 2004 and was laid to rest at the Guadalupe Cemetery in Sebastian.
