The plaintiff accuses the defendants of breach of fiduciary duty and medical battery.
Litzkow says she went to Armstrong’s Newport Beach office in 2017 for dermatological skin issues. She received a bunch of treatments from 2017 until January 2021.
In early 2020, Litzkow claims Armstrong told her that she was dissatisfied with a leading brand of cosmetic dermatology products and had found a company that proved substitute products that were of superior quality.
In the suit, Litzkow claims she was shown the new products that had Korean writing on them.
It was around this time that she claims to have started experiencing pain to her face. She described the pain has as her face feeling as if a thread had come loose and was poking into her skin from behind her skin.
Armstrong told Litzkow that Woo Lee would treat her to fix the problem. She claims Armstrong referred to him as Dr. Lee.
Litzkow claims she later found out Woo Lee had been disciplined for insurance fraud and even though he wore scrubs, he was not practicing medicine in a partnership with Armstrong.
She says Woo Lee voluntarily surrendered his license in 2019 and was prohibited from practicing medicine.
Litzkow claims Woo Lee still held and manipulated her face, injected her with local anesthesia and addressed the problem in her face. She’s furious Armstrong had a unlicensed doctor work on her face.
The suit is demanding in excess of $250k for the mental suffering, anxiety and emotional distress. Armstrong has yet to respond to the suit.
The reality star is currently facing a separate lawsuit brought by a former patient who claims she was left disfigured after Armstrong worked on her face.
