Fayetteville VA

40/29 reports on progress in a Veterans Affairs review of the work of a pathologist fired from the Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks in Fayetteville. The VA has reviewed 14,000 of Dr. Robert Morris Levy’s 33,0000 cases and found errors in 1,119, with 11 significant enough to cause harm. Three deaths may be related to the diagnoses.

The VA fired Levy in April because it said he’d been impaired by alcohol on duty. He has denied that.


40/29 reported that Levy said he had not been notified by the VA about the misdiagnosis.
