Blog > A Patient’s Right to Privacy Violated1 min read

Recently, 36-year-old dental assistant Luis Ramos was arrested on charges of oral copulation and sexual battery for assaulting women while under anesthesia. Investigation into the office’s surveillance videos captured Ramos committing these heinous and lude acts on 13 unsuspecting women, who simply came to have their teeth worked on.

Now we’ve learned the violations have gone from bad to worse because none of these patients knew that Park Boulevard Oral Surgery’s owner, Dr. Steven Podstreleny, was recording their activity on the premises, including in private exam rooms.

No documentation of written consent for video recording has been found for any of the women involved.

I intend to vigorously defend the rights of these women whose legal and natural expectations of privacy in the exam room were violated by the clinic.

“In a private examination room a doctor needs to get your consent to be videotaped because you have a reasonable expectation of privacy when you are in a private room.”

When doctors and dentists violate our rights and behave in unconscionable ways, abusing their power and our trust – they need to be held accountable.

If you or a loved one has been sexually assaulted, I am here to listen and to help you. You can contact me confidentially and at no cost to you.
