Court reviews summary judgment ruling in favor of a physician on the grounds of a patient's credibility.

TERESA L. WEAVER, ET AL. v. TRAVIS K. PARDUE, M.D., ET AL. (Tenn. Ct. App. November 1, 2010)

This appeal arises out of a primary care physician's alleged negligent and tortious treatment of a longtime patient. The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of the physician, questioning the credibility of the patient's allegations and holding in part that the physician's alleged conduct could not support a cause of action for intentional infliction of emotional distress. We reverse and remand.
