Hi Bunnyhabit,

I am so sorry to hear this! What a complete and utter abuse of power!

If you would like, please feel free to private message me anytime if you need or want to share more and need support from a fellow survivor.

Thanks,

Bergen County psychologist charged with repeated sexual assaults of a child - nj.com ( trigger)
I am not trying to equate therapy abuse or sexual assault with pedophilia or imply one is better than the other but it got me to thinking about the power imbalance that exists between any therapist and a client. I suspect that the sometimes those who are meant to help us as "professionals" are the sickest of all.

I was involved in several cases against him.
- Criminally- Even though he had just been arrested for doing something similar with another female patient and was released on $10,000 bond, I was told my criminal case was dropped due to lack of evidence. I have no knowledge that he was ever criminally prosecuted for anything.

-Civilly- My civil case against him went on for more than a year. It was a long drawn-out traumatizing deal. I believe the other side hoped I would give up. I didn’t. It ended when it was shown he did not carry malpractice insurance for the time when he did the most egregious acts against me. He also claimed bankruptcy several times. There were no assets to attach.

-Medical Board- The Medical Board case used testimony from three of his victims. The Medical Board ended up believing us.

In the care of each of the three patients the Pdoc’s medical license was revoked due to gross negligence, incompetence, and sexual misconduct;

In the care of each of the three patients he had engaged in repeated negligence , and; in his filing of false declarations in an Interim Suspension proceeding, he engaged in dishonesty.

The Medical Board ordered his medical license revoked based upon each and every violation found.

Having been found guilty of professional misconduct in another state, his medical license was revoked in a second state.

States do not always have reciprocity. The second state revoked his license only after I found that second medical license and contacted that second state medical board. His second medical license was only revoked because *I* notified them of his first revocation. If something like this happens to you, you may have to search for all of their licenses throughout the different states and notify them.

-Medicare- I contacted Medicare and Medicare revoked his ability to bill through them.

-Medicaid- I contacted Medicaid and Medicaid revoked his ability to bill through them.

In recent times, I found him listed as an ‘online psychiatrist or therapist’ through a few online therapy sites. I notified them of his license revocation and they responded by saying I must have read old information as they have no dealings with him. Sure. They listed his name and information on their online doctor website *for free* and didn’t know anything about it. Anyway, they removed his name.

Wow, Precaryous, you are a warrior! I keep telling people in terms of regular medical doctors as well that we have to speak up and fight back in situations of inadequate care that have nothing to do w this kind of horrific abuse. However w regular medical doctors, rushing in those 15 min appointments enforced by many ins companies can cost patients their lives, or simply make their lives miserable w unresolved medical situations.

I agree, we have a right to speak up about inadequate care we receive from Health Professionals. In recent times I’ve heard some hospitals have a ‘Patient Experience ‘ Department. I’m not sure if they really want to be helpful or if it’s just a fancy name for the providers to circle the wagons and cover their a**es.
