Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
1. Did the lower court err in ruling as a matter of law upon a motion for summary judgment that the plaintiff failed to prove a genuine issue of fact regarding the issue of causation.
2. Did the lower court err in ruling as a matter of law upon the motion for summary judgment that Mr. Long's claim against Mercy Medical Center must fail for lack of expert testimony.

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Adducci's Statement of Issues on Appeal in 20040089
I. Did the District Court properly order summary judgment against the plaintiff when it found, as a matter of law, that Mr. Long could not demonstrate a breach of Dr. Adducci's duty of disclosure?
Jaszczak's Statement of Issues on appeal in 20040088:
Did the trial court properly granted summary judgment dismissing Mr. Long's complaint against Dr. Jaszczak?
II. Did the trial court err in allowing Mr. Long to proceed with his case against Dr. Jaszczak in the absence of supporting expert opinion?
III. Did the trial court err in not dismissing Mr. Long's informed consent claim against Dr. Jaszczak because Mr. Long did not bring his case prior to the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations? II. Did the District Court properly order summary judgment against Mr. Long when it found, as a matter of law, that the plaintiff could not demonstrate a causal link between the alleged failure to disclose by Dr. Adducci and the injury suffered?
Adducci's Statement of Issues on Cross-Appeal in 20040089
I. Did the District Court properly find that summary judgment was not appropriate because Mr. Long started his action within the statute of limitations as to Dr. Adducci on the informed consent claim?
II. Did the District Court properly find that summary judgment was not appropriate even though Mr. Long did not have an expert to support his allegations of malpractice against Dr. Adducci? Mercy Medical Center's Statement of Issues on appeal in 20040089:
I. Did the trial court properly grant summary judgment dismissing Mr. Long's complaint against Mercy Medical Center?
