EXPOSÉ SHEDS LIGHT ON PHYSICIANS AND SEXUAL ASSAULT

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution conducted an alarming new investigation into documented cases of physician sexual abuse. The examination initially started in Georgia and they discovered that two out of three doctors in the state who were disciplined for sexual misconduct kept their license or lost it and got it back. There were many different types of cases, including, fondling, molestations, and even rape.

Each case in public records detail doctors identifying their actions but consequence to their crimes were often not reflective of the punishment they should receive. Many physicians continued to practice medicine with only a slap on the wrist.

The AJC extended their investigation to the nationwide search and found startling findings. Georgia was no different than any other state in the country, and the medical system protects doctors’ actions and leave patients victims without justice or legal recourse.

How Do They Get Away With It?

Patients are often sexually assaulted when they are sedated by drugs during surgical procedures. This is the most vulnerable time for patients and doctors can easily get away with sexual abuse and deny actions due to the patient’s impaired state.

A lot of patients do not report the sexual misconduct due to fears, intimidation, confusion, or simply embarrassment. Victims often feel they will not be heard or that their case will not be taken seriously. Worst of all, colleagues and nurses often stay quiet to avoid potential work relation issues. Hospitals can also ignore incidents and silence potential investigations.

Client Testimonials
  • "I first met Nick Moraitakis under the worst possible circumstances. The sudden, tragic death of my husband left me alone with a young child. Needless to say, I was in shock and emotionally paralyzed, with nothing more than unanswered questions. At a loss and nowhere to turn, a family friend recommended I contact Nick. Little did I know the impact he would have on my life. From the moment we met, I knew he was someone I could trust. At a time when I was vulnerable and scared, trust was something that was hard to come by. He immediately went to work on my case, which was a great feeling because it gave me hope. He has walked me through the entire process, answered even the most trivial of questions, and perhaps most importantly, listened to me. He has always made himself available when I have needed him and I honestly feel that my case is important and a top priority. Words cannot begin to express how invaluable Nick has been through the most difficult time in my life. Nick has gone above and beyond the call of duty for me, and for that, I am forever grateful. I have been completely devastated by my husband’s death, but now that our financial future is more secure, I can focus on what is most important: raising my daughter the way my husband and I always wanted."  -Catherine G., Atlanta, GA

  • "We were very blessed to have Glenn representing us at a very difficult time in our lives. Due to medical negligence, our son was left brain damaged and severely incapacitated. Glenn was always available to us when we needed him and he took our concerns and needs seriously. We were treated as friends not just as clients and if Glenn didn’t have an answer for us when we asked, he would tell us “I don’t have an answer for you right now, but I will find out and get back to you” and he always did. Thanks to Glenn and his assistant Konnie, we were represented with legal counsel that exceeded our expectations."  -Allen and Catherine D., Atlanta, GA

  • "The best decision you can make. If you are reading this testimonial and wondering about Nick Moraitakis: Is he a good attorney? Can he help me? Does he understand what I am going through? Will he give me the attention and time I seek? Does he know his way through the Law, in the Courts and with the Judges? Will he understand how important this case is to me? Is he honest? Does he have great integrity? … Does his staff reflect his values and professionalism? My answer YES and YES!!!! Nick Moraitakis represented me in a challenging case and at a difficult time in my life. Having him as my attorney was the best thing that could happen to me- He had my best interest in mind, he worked with me as if I was his only client and was with me all the way through!"  -Simona E., Atlanta, GA

  • "I nearly died on an operating room table and had many complications. I was referred by another law firm to Glenn Kushel. I do not regret my decision to have them represent me in this matter. They were great! They came to me, as I was unable to travel. They listened and really cared about you as a person. They always returned my calls the same day. Their legal assistant Konnie Tate is the best. Glenn and his staff got me all the compensation I was entitled to. They worked hard to make sure I could get back on my feet and take care of my children. Thank you Glenn, Konnie & staff for all your hard work."  -Rhonda H., Atlanta, GA
