Beaumont resident Miyoka Brown has non-suited several medical providers from her suit, which alleged the former defendants did not adequately treat her burned foot.

As previously reported, the suit was filed March 26, 2012, in Jefferson County District Court and named Dr. Jeff Alford, Dr. Tiffany Egbe and Memorial Hermann Baptist Beaumont Hospital as defendants. 

Court records show that on July 31 Brown filed a notice of non-suit for all three defendants.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, granted the motion on Aug. 6, court papers say.

According to the suit, Brown sought treatment from Drs. Alford and Egbe for a burn on her foot.

Beginning March 13, 2010, Brown underwent three-days of treatment which she claims consisted of soaking her burned foot in water and taking pain medication.

She alleges the defendants fell below the standard of care in her treatment.

She was seeking an award of exemplary damages and was also suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Houston attorney Rodney Moton represents her.

Case No. A192-214
