I read your facts, is there a specific question with which I could assist?
I can't say he's responsible for all of them since 1) I'm not a medical expert and 2) we don't have any medical expert reports on the physician's behavior.
What I can tell you, and this may be what you were asking, is that if you choose to sue then the fact that he offered discounts or free treatments/surgeries does not relieve him of any liability for his malpractice. Some doctors in similar situations have tried to take the position that since they did work for free then that removes them from any obligation but that's just incorrect. You would still be able to sue them for the malpractice and for any damages that result from the malpractice regardless of how much they charged.
