Keun Lee Aventura Doctor

Doctor In Training Arrested For Sexually Abusing Patient At Aventura Hospital

On Wednesday, December 23, 2021, Dr. Keun Lee surrendered to New jersey police to face allegations that he sexually assaulted a patient during exams at Aventura Hospital over two years ago.

Keun Lee, age 29, was charged with two counts of sexual battery and was awaiting extradition in jail in Bergen, New Jersey. Last week, he made a deal in court that allowed him to post bond in exchange for agreeing to fly to Miami and surrender. He was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Wednesday on two counts of sexual battery.

According to Florida records, Lee’s medical license was issued in 2018 but lapsed in 2020. At the time of the incident in 2019, Lee was a medical-school graduate and resident (doctor in training) at Aventura Hospital, located at 20900 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura, FL 33180. 

According to the arrest warrant, the victim was a 23-year-old woman who was admitted to Aventura Hospital with a severe leg injury on July 8, 2019. After surgery, she spent more than a week recovering in the hospital. By July 17, 2019, she was under the care of psychiatrist, Dr. Robert Vassal and Dr. Keun Lee, his resident in training. 

The arrest warrant stated that Vassal and Lee briefly met with the patient in the morning, but Lee returned later that afternoon to “examine” her. The victim told police that Lee used his bare hand to assault her. She also reported that Lee returned the next day and asked her inappropriate questions about her sex life. The victim stated that Lee appeared overly intrigued and then said she needed another “exam.” Lee then allegedly sexually attacked her again, the warrant said.

According to media reports, Aventura detectives stated that none of the “exams” were recorded in her medical file. They also confirmed the timeline after reviewing video surveillance of the doctor entering her room alone and corroborated the victim’s story. The patient’s surgeon and Vassal confirmed to police that Lee would have no reason to have multiple 40-minute long private visits with the patient or be conducting any physical examinations on her. After the case was reported to Aventura police, detectives tried calling Lee, but investigators learned that he fled to his native South Korea in April 2021, and returned to New Jersey in July 2021.

Aventura Hospital released the following statement that Lee was let go:

“Patient safety is at the center of everything we do at Aventura Hospital. This individual is no longer employed with us and we have and will continue to assist law enforcement with its investigation of this individual. Our concern continues to be for the victim, and we offer our support to her and her family.”

Ricardo Cruciani Horowitz Law

Sexual Abuse Lawsuits Against Former Neurologist Dr. Ricardo Cruciani and Hospitals that Employed Him

In 2017, Dr. Ricardo Cruciani, a neurologist, faced a total of 30 criminal counts after admitting to sexually abusing multiple women after prescribing them obscene dosages of opioids and pain medications. More than 17 women in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania accuse him of sexual misconduct. 

According to news reports, Dr. Cruciani was finally charged with sexual assault in Pennsylvania. Cruciani pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting seven patients while he was chairman of Drexel University’s neurology department. He reached a plea deal and was sentenced to seven years of probation, had his medical license revoked, and was forced to register as a sex offender. Although he still faced criminal charges in New York and New Jersey, Cruciani was released from custody on $1 million bail.

In October 2021, a new lawsuit was filed in New Jersey and civil suits in New York and Pennsylvania by the seven former patients of Cruciani. The new suit seeks liability from the former doctor and the hospitals and institutions that employed him over his 35-year tenure. These include Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, Drexel University in Pennsylvania, and Capital Health System in New Jersey.

The suits claim hospital administrators and staff members ignored multiple reports that Cruciani addicted vulnerable women to pain medications they didn’t need and sexually abused his patients. The suit claims that these institutions looked the other way and allowed Cruciani to quietly change jobs — never warning other hospitals, state authorities, or the police about the allegations. This negligence enabled Cruciani to continue his predatory behavior and add more victims to his list.

Each of thes victims suffered from severe pain due to various medical conditions and sought help from Dr. Cruciani due to his pristine reputation for pain management. They all claim that he was charming, personable, and seemed to really care. 

He prescribed potent opioids, increasing dosages monthly, and added medications, so the patient was “doped up” and addicted. They say he used his prescription pad to manipulate women in pain, pave the way to addiction and exploit their dependency for sex. Mr. Cruciani never had a chaperone in the room when he saw female patients. He also resisted their requests to have a nurse or companion present and even locked the door while in treatment.

One of the victims, Tanisha Johnson, stated that she became dependent on the drugs and that Cruciani became more aggressive during each visit. She claimed he groped her, masturbated in front of her, and forced her to perform oral sex on him. When she resisted, he withheld refills of her prescriptions, leaving her in withdrawal. Ms. Johnson said she was prescribed a concoction of more than 1,300 pain pills a month at one point.

Complaints from multiple patients mounted, but Cruciani managed to transfer from job to job, securing positions at hospitals in three states over the course of a decade. Johnson’s husband stated in an interview that he called the patient advocate’s office at Capital Health and described the assaults but never got a response.

A statement issued by Drexel University said that Mr. Cruciani was terminated in March 2017 after complaints from patients prompted an internal investigation that substantiated their claims. The statement said that the university notified licensing authorities in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and cooperated with police investigations.

However, Drexel officials pointed the finger at the other hospitals for failing to take action or to warn them. “Drexel hired Cruciani after conducting a thorough background check, as is done with all potential employees, that did not reveal any improper or illegal conduct. Mr. Cruciani had practiced medicine for more than 35 years at several other hospitals. None of these hospitals ever notified Drexel about Cruciani’s conduct.” the statement said. 

This case illustrates failures that permeate oversight of the medical profession, in which physicians wield enormous power within hospitals, misconduct is underreported, and institutional employers have zero accountability.

Raul Davila Horowitz Law

Fort Myers Doctor Raul Davila Accused of Sexual Abuse of Three Patients

On August 17, 2021, Dr. Raul David Davila was arrested in Lee County on one sexual battery and two battery charges for allegedly touching three of his female patients inappropriately during treatment. Davila was arrested and then released from Lee County Jail on a $30,000 bond. Raul Davila, a pain-management doctor, has his own private practice located at 8192 College Pkwy, Suite A18 in Fort Myers, FL 33919. He has been a licensed medical doctor in Florida since 1999. 

According to media reports, three alleged victims came forward to law enforcement reporting that Dr. Davila, age 66, inappropriately touched them during treatment for pain management. All three victims claim that they have been patients of Davila for over a year before the incidents occurred. 

Lee County Sheriff’s Office released a statement that one victim went for her regularly scheduled appointment with Davila on July 6, 2021. She claims Davila used a “massage gun” on her back while laying face-down on her stomach. Davila allegedly touched her inappropriately using his hands and the massage gun. The victim reacted to the inappropriate touching by telling Davila “no” and leaving the room. She was then brought into another room by Davila, where he asked her to keep what happened a secret. The report states that Davila said he blamed her for the incident because she “is so beautiful.”

The second victim told police officers that on January 13, 2021, she saw Davila for her monthly appointment. She claims that he withheld her medications until she sat on his lap. After doing so, Davila allegedly rubbed his hands on her back, down to her buttocks, and inside her underwear.

A third victim accused Davila of pulling down her pants, exposing her underwear, and pulling down the side of her shirt, exposing one of her breasts on March 11, 2020. The patient stated that the visit started as normal. She paid $200 in cash at check-in, had her vitals taken by a front desk worker, and then was escorted into a room to meet Davila to stretch. The victim claims that Davila told her not to tell anyone that he touches her because, technically, he isn’t a licensed physical therapist. She said that she had been a patient of Davila’s for about a year without issue, but that visits became increasingly inappropriate.

In July, police obtained a search warrant for Davila’s Fort Myers office. Two computers and Davila’s cell phone were brought into evidence. Davila also gave a DNA sample via mouth swab to investigators after they received a warrant. During the investigation, a detective learned about a 2013 battery incident that Davila was a suspect in at a health practice in Fort Myers. 

Laura Streyffeler, a licensed mental health counselor, stated. “It’s so far beyond inappropriate. It’s egregious behavior. Just because somebody has alphabet soup next to their name or higher education doesn’t make them immune to illegal, inappropriate, and really horrific behaviors.” 

As of today, Davila’s medical license remains active.

Yadiel Perez Delgado Horowitz Law

Hialeah Psychiatric Hospital Technician Yadiel Perez Delgado Arrested on Sexual Battery of Patient

On Monday, May 10, 2021, Yadiel Perez Delgado, age 34, has been arrested and charged with sexual battery. Perez Delgado, a mental health hospital technician, is accused of raping a female patient on May 10, 2021 at Southern Winds Hospital, located at 4225 W 20th Ave, Hialeah, FL 33012.

The alleged victim reported the abuse to another hospital staff member, who then called the Hialeah Police.  According to the police report, the victim was alone in her room, she walked into her bathroom, and she noticed Perez Delgado entering the room, partially closing the door.

Perez Delgado allegedly then walked into the bathroom, held the patient down, and forcibly raped her. She claims that he stopped when her roommate walked into the room. The arrest report states that Perez Delgado denied raping the woman but admitted to digitally penetrating her, which he claimed was consensual. After reviewing the surveillance video, Hialeah police arrested Perez Delgado on charges of sexual battery, false imprisonment, and sexual misconduct in a mental health facility. 

The alleged victim informed the detectives of another incident involving inappropriate touching on a different patient by Perez Delgado, which the Hialeah Police Department says they are also investigating.

Perez Delgado has been a mental health technician at Southern Winds for about six weeks, and it was his job to check on his patients every 15 minutes. “Under no circumstances was he allowed to close the door; they aren’t supposed to close the bedroom door while in a patient’s room doing their job,” stated the chief nursing officer. Southern Winds CEO, Ana Bovo, released a statement saying that Perez-Delgado had been fired.

According to the Florida Department of Health’s license verification site, Yadiel Perez Delgado isn’t listed as a Florida licensed medical professional.

Capt. Stanley Patrick Weber

Indian Health Services Strips Pension From Former Pine Ridge Doctor Stanley Weber

Captain Stanley Weber

IHS Removes Doctor’s Pension After He Is Sentenced For Child Sexual Abuse

Justice prevails as Indian Health Services (IHS) announced Tuesday, March 16, 2021, that they are stripping federal pension and benefits from Retired Capt. Stanley Patrick Weber, a former Pine Ridge, South Dakota doctor, was sentenced for child abuse in 2019.

According to a press release from U.S. South Dakota Representative Dusty Johnson’s office, the decision was made following the completion of a review by the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps Board of Inquiry.  State representatives urged the IHS to do an expedited review of Dr. Stanley Weber’s heinous crimes. Weber’s pension was estimated to be over $100,000 a year. “It’s disturbing someone like Mr. Weber would continue to receive a federal pension after what he put so many innocent children through,” stated Johnson. “I’m grateful HHS, and IHS took my request seriously and revoked his pension. There’s not much solace to offer in a situation like this, but I hope everyone rests easier knowing this monster isn’t receiving a government check every month and is behind bars where he belongs. A little more justice was served today.”

In 2019, Weber was convicted of multiple felony charges of aggravated sexual assault of minors while serving as an officer for the U.S. Public Health Service and assigned to IHS in Browning, Montana, from 1992 to 1995. He is serving an 18-year prison sentence after being found guilty of four sexual abuse crimes on the Blackfeet Reservation.

A Wall Street Journal/Frontline investigation uncovered that Weber abused patients for decades and that the IHS failed to protect Native American boys from abuse.  Accusations about Weber sexually abusing boys was known among his IHS co-workers, patients, and the Browning community. Additionally, the investigation found that “the IHS repeatedly missed or ignored warning signs, tried to silence whistleblowers and allowed Mr. Weber to continue treating children despite the suspicions of colleagues up and down the chain of command.

After Sending Explicit Photos to a Minor

Stewart Bitman Horowitz Law

On Tuesday, January 26, 2021, Dr. Stewart Bitman, a gastroenterologist of thirty years who has been affiliated with many hospitals in Broward and Miami-Dade counties, was arrested and criminally charged for allegedly sending sexually explicit photos of himself to a 13-year-old.  Dr. Stewart Bitman was booked at the Broward County Main Jail and faces three counts of transmission of material harmful to a minor and one count of solicitation of a minor. Bitman has been licensed to practice medicine in Florida since 1990.  At a bond hearing on January 27, Dr. Bitman’s bond was set at $80,000 ($20,000 for each criminal charge) and he was ordered to have no contact with minors and prohibited from traveling outside of South Florida.  No emergency orders restricting his medical license have been entered yet by the Florida Department of Health. 

According to media reports, a joint investigation with Broward Sheriff’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) detectives and Coral Springs Police Department began in April 2020. The investigation revealed that Bitman sent sexually explicit messages and photographs to an underage girl.  Detectives believe Bitman knew he was communicating with a minor, and while attempting to solicit victims, he portrayed himself as a teenage boy.

Officers reported that the texts revealed Bitman to be sitting at a desk/table in front of a computer with his drawstring shorts/pants and white underpants pulled down below his genitals. The text that is displayed across the picture says, “How many classes RU having each day?”

A SWAT team carried out a search of Bitman’s Parkland home on January 26, taking the doctor into custody and seizing multiple electronic devices for further analysis. Bitman had an office in Coral Springs (3001 Coral Hills Dr. Suite 250, Coral Springs, FL 33065) with Digestive CARE according to his state medical license. The investigation is ongoing. Detectives are working to identify any additional victims with whom Bitman may have communicated.

West Florida Doctor’s License Suspended After Sexual Assault Complaint

Dr. Thomas Lohstreter’s medical license suspended after allegation of sexual contact with patient

On March 9, 2020, the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) issued an Order of Emergency Suspension of Dr. Thomas Arnold Lohstreter’s medical license following allegations of sexual misconduct committed upon a a female patient at South County Medical Center in Englewood, Florida. Dr. Thomas Lohstreter, a Family Medicine Specialist, is 70 years old and became licensed in Florida in December 2017.  He also holds a medical license in Georgia and Minnesota.  In 2013, Dr. Thomas Lohstreter was disciplined by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice for “unethical and unprofessional conduct, improper management of medical records, and inappropriate prescribing practices.”

According to the FDOH, Dr. Lohstreter was accused of touching a female patient in an inappropriate manner unrelated to legitimate medical treatment. At the end of December 2019, a 56-year-old woman had a follow up appointment with Lohstreter complaining of nausea and loss of appetite, side effects of an anti-depressant he previously prescribed her.  According to the Emergency Order, while the patient was laying down to be examined, Lohstreter pulled up her shirt and bra, and felt her left breast while touching his genitals with his free hand. The Order says he then pulled down the patient’s pants and massaged her clitoris after saying, “Oh, something is there.” All the while he allegedly masturbated himself in her presence. He then left the room with an erect penis according to the Department of Health.

According to the Order, “Dr. Lohstreter’s continued practice as a medical doctor constitutes an immediate, serious danger to the health, safety, or welfare of the citizens of the State of Florida, and this summary procedure is fair under the circumstances to adequately protect the public.”  

When we go to a doctor’s office, we should be able to expect the physicians to be specially trained and licensed medical professionals whose goal is to make us feel better, not violate us. Patients seek out seasoned doctors who possess a good bedside manner, compassion and empathy. They trust that the doctors and staff at the office are carefully vetted, professional, and safe. Under no circumstances is it acceptable for any health care employee, including a doctor, to touch a patient in any sexual manner.

Horowitz Law has filed numerous sexual misconduct claims against medical professionals on behalf of patients who were inappropriately touched in their care.  Under no circumstances is a doctor or other health care professional permitted to have sexual contact with a patient.

Subhash Gupta sexual

Florida Health Department Bars Broward County Gastroenterologist From Seeing Female Patients

The Florida Department of Health issued an Emergency Order restricting gastroenterologist Subhash Gupta after he allegedly inappropriately touched a woman during an emergency room exam.  Dr. Gupta was practicing medicine in Pompano Beach, Florida.  He has been licensed to practice medicine in Florida since 1983.

According to the Florida Department of Health, Dr. Subhash Gupta touched a 58-year-old patient’s breasts without warning or a stethoscope after she came into the emergency room with a diagnosis of abdominal inflammation.  He repeated the same exam on the woman two other times, according to the emergency restriction order. The health department said Dr. Gupta’s exam was outside the scope of practice and was intended for Dr. Gupta’s around or sexual gratification.

Under the restriction order, Dr. Gupta cannot treat female patients.  Public records reveal Dr. Gupta was previously disciplined for performing an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy on a patient without her consent. Additionally, in 1993, Dr. Gupta was disciplined for providing inadequate medical care to seven patients and poor record keeping.

A mugshot for Matthew Johnson | Adam Horowitz Law

Clermont Acupuncturist Arrested for Sexual Battery of Teenage Patient

Clermont, Florida acupuncturist Matthew Johnson has been arrested on charges he sexually battered a 16-year old female patient during an acupuncture procedure.  According to law enforcement records, Matthew David Johnson allegedly placed his fingers in his teenage patient’s vagina and then forcibly put his mouth on her vagina to perform oral sex.  The Florida Department of Health issued an Emergency Order on January 29, 2019 on account of this alleged incident.  According to the Order, “Mr. Johnson’s continued practice as an acupuncturist constitutes an immediate, serious danger to the health, safety, or welfare of the citizens of the State of Florida, and this summary procedure is fair under the circumstances to adequately protect the public.”

Johnson is an acupuncturist renting space at One Yoga and Fitness in Clermont, where the molestation allegedly occurred.  The teenage girl had been a patient of the Dr. Johnson for a few weeks but this was the first time he violated her according to police records.  Matthew Johnson, age 48, has been a licensed acupuncturist in the State of Florida since 2011.  He was arrested by the Clermont Police Department on a felony charge at his home in Groveland on October 31, 2018.  Police records say Johnson had a prior arrest for sexual battery on victim under 12 years old and a kidnapping charge.

In a national investigation, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution examined documents that described disturbing acts of physician sexual abuse in every state. Rapes by OB/GYNs, seductions by psychiatrists, fondling by anesthesiologists and ophthalmologists, and molestations by pediatricians and radiologists.  Victims included babies, adolescents, senior citizens, drug addicts, and jail inmates.  But it could be anyone. Some patients were sedated when they were sexually assaulted. Others didn’t realize at first what had happened because the doctor improperly touched them or photographed them while pretending to do a legitimate medical exam.  Too often hospitals and health care organizations will brush off accusations or quietly push doctors out, the investigation found, without reporting them to police or licensing agencies.  We commend this alleged victim for having the courage to come forward.
