HOUSTON – A North Harris County podiatrist sued a former patient he claims is stalking him.

In a lawsuit filed Sept. 20 in the Harris County 157th District Court, Jason L. Armstrong explains that David Johnson’s alleged acts date back to when he treated the defendant at the Foot and Ankle Centers of North Houston from June 2010 to June 2012.

Armstrong said that he “reluctantly” gave an “upset and angry” Johnson his personal cell phone number after the latter demanded it in October 2011. Johnson abused his access to the plaintiff, the complaint says.

Court papers show that Johnson called Armstrong three times a day, as well as sent up to 20 texts per day. Armstrong said that the texts were “extremely disruptive and distracting.”

The parties’ patient-physician relationship ended on June 29, 2012. Despite no longer being treated by Armstrong, the suit says, Johnson sought the plaintiff at his practice and even appeared at his residence.

The respondent allegedly sent threatening emails to Armstrong and attempted to disparage the doctor to a local hospital. According to the suit, Johnson was unfazed by a cease and desist letter he received from Armstrong’s legal counsel in July and continues to target Armstrong to his day.

Attorneys Julie E. Benes and William C. Ferebee of the law firm O’Donnell, Ferebee & Frazer, P.C. in The Woodlands are representing the plaintiff.
