In June 2016, the podiatrist Kevin Fallon Kline DPM from the Fallon-Kline Foot and Ankle in Bethlehem, PA made the news after his arrest following an alleged assault on his parents. At the time, Dr Fallon Kline had closed his podiatry clinic to undergo surgery for a non-malignant brain tumor.
This notice was placed on the clinic's door:
The alleged assault occurred 3 days before the surgery. It is not known from media reports if the health condition was an issue in the violence. It is also not known from publicly available reports if the scheduled surgery went ahead.
