Holman v. Kanneganti, M.D.

When parents are pushed to such desperation as to have to place the well-being of their child into the hands of others, they should be assured that those looking after their child will take whatever measures necessary to protect them from harm.

For Justan Holman to have been able to take his own life while under the care of Dr. Kanneganti – less than 24 hours after being admitted to Baptist’s Behavioral Health Center (as a danger to himself) – is both inexcusable and unacceptable.

This matter is set for trial on February 26, 2018, in the 60th Judicial District Court of Jefferson County, Texas.
