“[T]he relevant considerations in determining whether a claim sounds in medical malpractice are whether 1.) the defendants are sued in their capacities as medical professionals, 2.) the alleged negligence is of a specialized medical nature that arises out of the medical professional-patient relationship, and 3.) the alleged negligence is substantially related to medical diagnosis or treatment and involved the exercise of medical judgment,” pursuant to Gold v. Greenwich Hospital Assn., a 2002 decision of the Connecticut Supreme Court.
