DENVER — Two more women have filed separate federal civil lawsuits against a former Vail doctor, joining a growing number of his former patients claiming he misdiagnosed them with incurable multiple sclerosis and then treated them for years with invasive medications that caused severe side effects.

Lawsuits on behalf of Christine Henson and Marie Barajas were filed late Monday night in Denver U.S. District Court against Dr. Gary M. Weiss, a neurologist continuing to practice in Palm Bay, Fla.

The lawsuits filed by Denver attorneys James Puga and Alex Wilschke, Hensen and Barajas each seek compensation of more than $75,000 and attorney’s fees, according to their lawsuits.
