Manhattan Jury Awards $4,873,703 to 52 year old landscaper, Robert Wyble, and his wife, Zaida Wyble, against Dr. Dale Lange, Chief of Neurology at Hospital for Special Surgery for wrong diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis.  Richard Gurfein tried the Wyble's case in Supreme Court, New York County and took the verdict on March 18, 2014.
