COYNE v. BERSANI


61 N.Y.2d 939 (1984)

Kathleen Coyne, Appellant, v. Robert A. Bersani, Respondent.

Court of Appeals of the State of New York.

Decided March 20, 1984.


Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Paul J. Giancola for appellant.

John Ganotis for respondent.

Concur: Chief Judge COOKE and Judges JASEN, JONES, WACHTLER, MEYER, SIMONS and KAYE.


Order affirmed, with costs, for the reasons stated in the memorandum of the Appellate Division (94 A.D.2d 961), to which we add that the submission by defendant at plaintiff's request of reports to other doctors independently consulted by plaintiff does not evidence the continuing trust and confidence which is one of the predicates for the continuous treatment doctrine on which plaintiff seeks to rely (see Greene v Greene, 56 N.Y.2d 86, 94; Barrella v Richmond Mem. Hosp., 88 A.D.2d 379, 383).
