DALLAS - Christopher Duntsch, once a supremely confident neurosurgeon with a solid resume and a wealth of potential, fled town in disgrace last year under a scalding cascade of allegations.
A colleague called him a sociopath and a "clear and present danger" to patients. Another doctor compared him to a serial killer. A fellow surgeon was so alarmed by what he saw that he grabbed Duntsch's tools in the middle of an operation.
Duntsch, 42, who moved to Centennial, no longer holds a medical license in Texas, but scrutiny has turned to a prestigious hospital where he worked.
Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano now faces hard questions in court: Did it know Duntsch was not fit to practice, and did it fail to stop him?
