Melissa Rivers is planning to sue Dr. Gwen Korovin, accused of performing an unscheduled biopsy on Joan Rivers.

It’s very difficult to discuss something so unpleasant with her, but she is going to launch a lawsuit,” a friend of Melissa Rivers told the Daily Mail.

“Korovin maintains privileges at one of the city’s most prestigious hospitals. She is respected and admired by her peers in the medical community and she is revered by her patients,” Korovin’s lawyer, Michael Kelton, said in a statement released to the Daily Mail.

Rivers went into cardiac and respiratory arrest on Aug. 28 while undergoing a throat procedure at the Yorkville Endoscopy clinic on the Upper East Side. She died at Mount Sinai Hospital on Sept. 4.[su_csky_ad]

    She was old, probably scarred from all the plastic surgery she has had, this was forseeable

      You don’t get plastic surgery in your throat. This procedure was performed in an office, and considering her age, it should have been done in a hospital.
