“It’s very difficult to discuss something so unpleasant with her"

Melissa Rivers is expected to proceed with a lawsuit against Dr. Gwen Korovin.  Korovin is the doctor who specializes in ear, nose, and throat ailments -- and performed an unplanned biopsy on Joan Rivers.

Prior to the surgery, Rivers had consented to an endoscopy, but not a biopsy. Yorkville Endoscopy has denied that a biopsy was performed on Rivers, and the clinic's medical director has stepped down in the wake of Rivers' death.

"Melissa does plan to sue the clinic," a source close to Melissa Rivers told theMail. "She is going to launch a lawsuit."

“It’s very difficult to discuss something so unpleasant with her, but she is going to launch a lawsuit,” an insider told Mail Online regarding the pending legal proceedings.

Sources told Radar Sept. 17 that Melissa Rivers was calling Korovin “a spineless” after the doctor was nowhere to be found in the wake of the Fashion Police star’s death.

Joan “trusted these doctors to take care of her,” the source said, “and it appears that there was a huge failure of epic proportions on multiple levels.”

Dr. Korovin's other celebrity clientele includes Lady Gaga, Hugh Jackman and Celine Dion. Korovin's lawyer, citing confidentiality laws, has declined to address reports of her alleged involvement in Rivers' death.

Rivers' death is under investigation by the New York Department of Health and the city's medical examiner.
