No. 82-1397.

484 A.2d 579 (1984)

Donald C. MEEK, M.D., Appellant, v. Delphine SHEPARD, et al., Appellees.

District of Columbia Court of Appeals.

Decided November 30, 1984.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Steven A. Hamilton, Rockville, Md., for appellant.

James R. Stoner, Washington, D.C., for appellees. William R. Voltz, Washington, D.C., was on brief for appellees.

Before PRYOR, Chief Judge, and NEBEKER and TERRY, Associate Judges.

TERRY, Associate Judge:

In this medical malpractice action a doctor appeals from a Superior Court judgment on a verdict in favor of his patient. We hold that because the plaintiff, Mrs. Shepard, offered no evidence of the standard of care owed to her by Dr. Meek, she failed to establish a prima facie case. Consequently, we must reverse the trial court's denial of the doctor's motion for a directed verdict and remand with directions to enter judgment for Dr. Meek....
