According to the complaint, Arterberry sought treatment from the defendants for complaints associated with right upper extremity, right and right finger pain, numbness and discoloration. He alleges the defendants failed to diagnose and treat an arterial insufficiency in his upper right extremity, which resulted in amputation on Jan. 19, 2018.
