How To Spot A Narcissistic Doctor Beneath The White Coat?

If you liked our content please help us sharing it

Have you ever been treated by a doctor who refuses to listen to anything you say and insists their diagnosis is correct, even though they haven’t performed the necessary tests? It’s not a pleasant feeling. 

While it would be nice to think that every healthcare provider is committed to healing and caring for their patients, the reality is that some are driven by self-centeredness and a sense of superiority.

The medical profession has its fair share of narcissists whose behavior and belief in their supremacy and indestructibility can negatively impact patient care.

how to spot narcissistic doctors

In this article, I want to discuss how to identify a narcissistic doctor and the potential impact their psychological condition may have on patients.

Understanding this issue empowers patients to make informed decisions about their healthcare and advocate for the treatment they deserve.

6 Signs of a Narcissistic Doctor

Signs of a Narcissistic Doctor

Some certain behaviors and tendencies make doctors with narcissistic personality disorder stand out from the crowd. 

Patients often look up to narcissistic doctors because they’re so confident about their abilities, inflate their achievements, and undermine other doctors by derogatory comments about them. 

Unfortunately, admiring a narcissistic doctor could be detrimental to your health because they’ll never care as much about your recovery as they do their status and image. 

That’s why it’s critical you know how to spot a narcissistic doctor, which you can do easily by looking out for the following signs:

#1 Extreme Self-Importance 

A narcissistic doctor will consistently exaggerate their accomplishments, abilities, and medical experts. They may claim to be the best in their field and display an air of superiority that makes those around them feel less important.

For example, a narcissistic doctor might constantly interrupt their patient with statements like, “I’ve seen hundreds of cases like yours, and they always turn out to be nothing to worry about,” or dismiss your concerns with a flippant comment like, “You’re lucky to have me as your doctor; I’m known for my exceptional diagnostic skills.”

Throughout the consultation, the narcissistic doctor will consistently disregard the patient’s questions or attempt to express their feelings and redirect the conversation back to their own accomplishments.

The selfish need for admiration and validation causes the doctor to downplay the patient’s concerns and focus on promoting their superiority rather than providing empathetic and attentive care.

#2 Need for Admiration

Narcissistic doctors crave constant praise and admiration from their colleagues and patients.

They constantly need people to validate their skills and knowledge and will take every opportunity to share stories of their extraordinary surgical outcomes or innovative techniques. 

A narcissistic doctor will expect their colleagues to toe the line and follow their instructions without question. They will often dismiss anyone who offers a different opinion or challenges their decisions, even if it’s their patient. 

The need to impress may become so intense that the narcissistic doctor purposefully complicates a surgical procedure simply so they can showcase their surgical skills, unnecessarily putting the patient at risk. 

#3 Lack of Empathy

Empathy is crucial in healthcare, but a narcissistic doctor may show little concern for patients’ emotions, dismiss their concerns or appear indifferent to their suffering.

For instance, narcissistic doctors may dismiss their patients’ concerns, saying, “Oh, don’t worry. I’ve performed countless surgeries like yours and always get the best results.” 

If the patient continues to voice concerns about the procedure or recovery, the narcissistic doctor will become increasingly impatient, telling the patient, “Let’s not dwell on emotions. I’m here to monitor your heart condition, so let’s stick to that for now. If you follow my instructions and take your medication, you have nothing to worry about.”

A narcissistic doctor tends to be dismissive, interrupting the patient and deflecting attention away from them and onto his medical expertise.

#4 Exploitative Behavior

Narcissistic doctors tend to exploit their position for personal gain, whether financial or emotional. 

For example, a narcissistic doctor treating a patient with heart disease may dismiss the patient’s concerns that the condition is worsening. They would rather focus on a more challenging case that will earn them more admiration and regard. 

They might dismiss the patient’s concerns and refuse to run routine tests because they’ve been managing the condition effectively for years. 

If the patient persists, they may become aggressive, saying, “I’m the expert here. I know what’s best for you. Tests are expensive and unnecessary in your case. Trust me; your symptoms will subside with the medication I’m prescribing.”

They may even accuse the patient of being overly dramatic, saying, “I’ve treated hundreds of patients with heart conditions, and they all trust my judgment. You should too.”

In this instance, the narcissistic doctor is endangering their patient’s life by using exploitative behavior and refusing to conduct the necessary tests. 

Instead of focusing on the patient’s distress and worsening symptoms, they use their position of authority to manipulate the patient into accepting their diagnosis and treatment plan without question. 

The narcissistic doctor also prioritizes his ego and desire for control and status over providing patient-centered care.

#5 Lack of Accountability

Narcissistic doctors may deflect responsibility for medical errors, blaming others, including the patient. 

For instance, a patient is experiencing pain and discomfort following a surgical procedure and is seeking reassurance and clarity. 

Rather than providing that, the narcissistic doctor responds defensively, saying, “I’m a highly skilled surgeon, and my success rate speaks for itself. It’s not my responsibility if your body doesn’t react well to the procedure. You must have some underlying health condition you failed to tell us about.” 

Despite the patient’s continued distress and attempts to seek accountability, the narcissistic doctor consistently deflects blame and avoids taking responsibility for the complications experienced after the surgery.

Rather than addressing the patient’s concerns, they prioritize their reputation and ego, leaving them feeling unheard and disregarded.

#6 Failure to Listen

They may dominate conversations, interrupt patients, and appear more interested in discussing themselves than understanding patients’ needs.

For instance, a patient complains of recurring headaches and dizziness, which are severe enough to impact their daily life. The narcissistic doctor dismisses their concerns, saying, “It’s probably just stress or lack of sleep. Take some painkillers, and you’ll be fine.”

When the patient asks if there are any tests they could do to get to the bottom of the problem, the doctor refuses to reconsider their initial diagnosis, saying, “Tests are unnecessary at this point. I’ve been practicing medicine for years, and I can tell you it’s nothing serious. Trust me; I know what I’m doing.”

Here, the narcissistic doctor consistently interrupts and dismisses the patient’s concerns without giving them a chance to express their symptoms fully.

Their selfish behavior is evident as they prioritize their assumptions and experiences over actively listening to the patient’s worries. 

Such behavior could lead to delayed diagnosis or treatment, putting the patient in potential danger.

How Prevalent is Narcissism in the Medical Profession?

How Prevalent is Narcissism in the Medical Profession

Narcissism is less prevalent in the medical profession than expected, with studies showing that healthcare professionals score lower on narcissism than the general population.

A study conducted in the UK in 2015 found that “Within the cohort of medical professionals, surgeons expressed significantly higher levels of narcissism” and that out of the surgical specialties represented in the study, “vascular surgery showed the highest mean score for narcissism.”

This is understandable, given that they’re working in a specialty that requires them to make challenging decisions with confidence and a fundamental belief in their abilities. 

The study states, “This is particularly true of vascular surgery, where a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm is enough to rupture a hole in most people’s underwear.”

Within the nursing profession, the incidence of narcissism is very low, as it is in critical care, cardiology, and geriatrics, where the potential for high status is limited. 

How to Deal with a Narcissistic Doctor?

How to Deal with a Narcissistic Doctor

Should you come across a narcissistic doctor, you need to be prepared to deal with the situation proactively. 

Remember, as a patient, you have a right to the best possible care, which means having a doctor who listens to you, empathizes with your condition, and prioritizes your needs. 

Failing to do this could expose you to negligent or neglectful behavior, misdiagnosis, and substandard treatment. 

Trust your Instincts

If you feel uncomfortable or uneasy with your doctor’s behavior, take those feelings seriously.

Trust your instincts and address your concerns. It might be useful to note how the doctor’s behavior unsettles you or why you feel their conduct may compromise your treatment.  

Seek a Second Opinion

If you have doubts about your doctor’s diagnosis or treatment plan, consider seeking a second opinion from another medical professional.

A different perspective might be all it takes to give you the clarity and peace of mind you seek.

Document your Experiences

Record all your consultations and interactions with the doctor, including any behaviors that concern or upset you, such as dismissive attitudes or boundary violations.

Specific examples can be helpful if you decide to take the issue up with higher authorities.

Advocate for Yourself

Don’t be afraid to speak up and advocate for your healthcare needs. If your concerns are not being taken seriously, express your feelings and preferences clearly.

Discuss your Concerns with the Doctor

If you feel comfortable, express your concerns directly to the doctor. Be assertive but respectful in communicating how their behavior affects your care and well-being. 

If you lack the confidence to address your concerns directly with the doctor, consider involving a patient advocate or ombudsman who can support and guide you.

Seek Support

Talk to friends, family, or support groups about your experiences. A supportive network can provide emotional validation and help you navigate difficult situations.

Report Ethical Violations

If you believe the doctor’s behavior is unethical or harmful, consider reporting your concerns to relevant medical authorities or the institution where the doctor practices.

Change Doctors if Necessary

If your concerns are not adequately addressed, consider finding a new doctor who makes you feel comfortable and respected.

Not all doctors who exhibit certain traits are narcissists, and making such judgments can be challenging.

However, if you consistently feel unheard, invalidated, or mistreated by your doctor, protecting your health and finding the best possible care is crucial.

What Impact does a Narcissistic Doctor have on Patient Care?

What Impact does a Narcissistic Doctor have on Patient Care

I touched on some consequences of being treated by a narcissistic doctor earlier.

Still, I’d like to expand on those concepts and highlight a few other potential concerns about how a narcissistic doctor could impact your treatment and level of care. 

Lack of Empathy 

One of the most discomforting aspects of being treated by a narcissistic doctor is their refusal to address your concerns.

Their lack of empathy means the narcissistic doctor fails to deliver care that considers all the patient’s emotional, cognitive, and biological needs.

According to a study of empathy in general practice, “A doctor’s ability to establish an empathic understanding of their patient’s situation is essential to developing a therapeutic relationship.

This relationship is vitally important to practicing medicine effectively.”

In other words, a narcissistic doctor who lacks empathy also fails to practice medicine effectively. 

Self-Image 

A narcissistic doctor who only cares about improving their status, public image, and career path may complicate a patient’s treatment simply so they can show off their abilities.

For example, they may recommend a more complicated surgical procedure than is necessary simply because they want to impress others by showing off their surgical expertise. 

Refusal to Back Down

Once a narcissistic doctor has given a diagnosis, they will often resist any other suggestions or alternative theories.

They may even refuse to conduct tests because they’re so certain of their diagnosis and feel no further evidence is required. 

This could lead to them misdiagnosing or overlooking a more complicated health concern, potentially endangering the patient’s life.

Bullying 

Due to their grandiose sense of self-importance and an overwhelming desire to be seen as superior, narcissistic doctors may resort to intimidating or bullying tactics to ensure that their diagnosis is unquestionably accepted by their peers, even when there are doubts about its accuracy.

This behavior can have severe consequences, as it may prevent a thorough examination of the patient’s case and lead to a potentially incorrect or incomplete diagnosis.

Can Narcissism Affect a Doctor’s Decision-Making Process?

While narcissism may not influence every decision a narcissistic doctor makes, their desire for status, admiration, and power can negatively impact decision-making.

Research shows that doctors demonstrating high levels of narcissism are more likely to be influenced by potential financial gain.

For instance, when enrolling patients in a clinical trial, they may be motivated by money and status rather than their needs. 

Evidence suggests that health practitioners suffering from narcissism may be less receptive to new information, especially if it contradicts their initial opinions or diagnosis. 

They are so determined to be right that they refuse to consider new insights or research, meaning they deliver sub-standard care to the patient. 

In an article about narcissistic personality disorder in medicine in Australia, author Leanne Rowe notes that “The quality of patient care may be at risk, particularly if the doctor is impulsive, [or] overconfident about their capabilities.”

What are the Potential Risks of Being Treated by a Narcissistic Doctor?

If a narcissistic doctor is treating you, the chances are your needs are not their top priority, which means you won’t get the standard of care you deserve. 

A narcissistic doctor might reduce a patient to a mere narcissistic supply, manipulating them to fulfill the doctor’s insatiable need for admiration. 

Under such conditions, the patient may be exposed to dehumanizing behavior, such as demeaning their concerns through a type of medical gaslighting or stonewalling their patients altogether. 

They may even go as far as to brand the patient as a hypochondriac simply because they were seeking clarity about their condition and subsequent treatment protocol. 

Similarly, they may refuse to take responsibility for a misdiagnosis and even shift the blame onto the patient, saying it’s their fault the treatment isn’t working as well as expected. 

Doctors with narcissistic personality disorder are also more likely to seek financial gain by recommending unnecessary services or exaggerating the treatment required.

This could even cause a healthy individual to believe they have contracted an illness they don’t have. 

A narcissistic health provider can cause considerable harm to a patient, by dismissing their concerns, refusing to revisit a diagnosis or treatment recommendation, placing financial gain over the patient’s needs, or even, according to therapist Rev. Sheri Heller, “inflicting physical and mental damage in response to a patient’s effort to report grievances.”

How can Patients Protect their Rights when Dealing with a Narcissistic Doctor?

A narcissistic healthcare provider may behave in such a way as to violate the patient’s rights.

For instance, they might fail to provide quality care, isolate or abandon the patient, or treat the patient with dignity or respect. 

In the US, these rights are protected by law, which means you could be able to sue or at least get legal advice on the situation.

You may not want to escalate the situation to this level, in which case, you should consider either seeking a second opinion or involving a patient advocate who can advise you on how best to proceed.

You may also want to report any ethical violations that have occurred either to the institute where you’re being treated or to the relevant medical authority.

  1. My primary care physician is a narcissist. His behavior is erratic and he is inconsistent. When questioned he simply does not respond. I am in the process of finding another healthcare provider.

  2. Thank you- so much, for posting this article. As a society, we assign to the individual the integrity the role of being a ‘doctor’ implies- they do not have to ‘win’ our trust- they already have it. Narcissistic doctors are the ultimate wolves in sheep’s clothing.

    I have actually been lied about- outrageously- by a doctor who, it seems, decided to ‘play god’. Mercifully- if you can call it that, he was rather stupid in the way he went about it leading to the Scottish ombudsman seeing through him and his statements… I got through it in the end. It was a horrendously traumatic experience to go through, however. And I certainly wouldn’t have coped without my family. And even with that my sense of trust has been severely damaged.

    Narcissistic individuals are very callous indeed.

  3. I like the explication describing the Narcissist dr. And I will be quoting it in court. Drs have lots of money & can buy expensive lawyers, victims virtually have no rights as a lawyer will not take a case unless he can make thousands off you. Malpractice suites are costly, you are required to have other Drs. testify against your dr almost impossible to do for they have a code of ethics between them. So here is what I have done and why.
    My dr deliberately gave me a hormone pellet with fillers in it that I told her I would have a serious reaction too, she claimed they were 100% natural no fillers. First LIE. 2nd she gave me more than twice the amount I asked for knowing my previous dr had reduced my dosage due to problems. All this was done because “I had told her what to do” after I started having severe problems she then admitted the pellets had fillers, I also knew from my reaction that she gave me more of it then told too. Her rely was “it is not too much” if my dr of 5 yrs said it was then who gives this dr the right after an 8 min consultation to say otherwise? I also asked her why she would give me what I told her not too after being informed I would have serious problems, her words were “I don’t do what my patients want I do what I think is best” I ended up being sick for almost two years, the pellets were time released, and for 9 months I was poisoned daily I have never been so fatigued in my life, I could hardly function, suffered with a headache for 8 months straight. I have been detoxing my body for two years now and finally seeing some improvement. No Lawyer would help me. So I recently filed a lawsuit in small claims charging her with Violating my civil rights by giving me something she was told not too, Lying to me right up to the moment she surgically implanted them & lying about how much she gave me. Then too make matters worse when I told her to remove them she refused making one excuse after another. Suing for pain & suffering, Battery Tort, Assault, Negligence and punitive damages. Will I win I don’t know, but I did record my phone conversations proving she deliberately went against my instructions and my will thereby voiding any consent given prior as it was obtained fraudulently. Her actions prove she is not only a Narcissist buy a danger to her patients. She even went so far as to alter my medical records trying to cover up her incompetence.

    She has obtained an atty. while I am left on my own due lack of finances, if anyone out there is reading this & knows an atty. in Georgia who pro bono or on contingency wants to see justice done please let me know as I will save this page and check back periodically. If even one dr can be made accountable for their actions without costly court costs & greedy lawyers in higher courts then my case could set a pressidence showing narcissistic Drs. that they can no longer deliberately destroy patients lives and get away with it.

    She violated her hypocritical oath “I will do no harm to my patients” violated my rights to say what I will and will not accept in my body. She is required by law to inform her patients what she is giving them and how much & required to get permission before she can proceed, she obtained my consent through lying & fraud, committed assault by severely bruising me, put the pellets other than where she was told too, and committed an act of violence toward me. So why is it I can’t find anyone to help me simply because I am poor. Is there NO ONE out there interested in justice and putting a stop to Drs. Like her? Because I could sure use some help. One thing I forgot to mention is my blood pressure soared, as high as 224/123 at times, it remains in the danger zone as I am unable to take prescription medicines due to severe reactions so she as also put my life at risk. The only thing that has helped me is I was an herbalist for 33 yrs.

    • I know a lawyer who might help. I havent talked to him in a while, but in certain cases he won’t require payment until after things are over and done. He even helps some of his clients out financially if they need it. What he loans is lumped into the final price, but he’ll help them if they really need it.

    • Have you contacted or filed a formal complaint with the Georgia Board of Healung Arts? They are the regulating body for the physicians licensure in that state and with a formal complaint filed the particular physician will be investigated by the board. The physicians continued licensure will be determined if the board finds malpractice. If malpractice is noted then attorney’s will pay heed, as well as private and federally funded insurance carriers which can result in the physician being unable to file insurance claims and ultimately hinder revenue for her practice.

  4. As a physician I must salute the author for shedding light on this rampant, oftentimes abusive, issue in healthcare today. This is problematic not only for patients, yet also for non-narcissistic colleagues attempting to effectively serve those patients. I sincerely thank you.

  5. I live in Kendal, Cumbria and the local NHS seems riddled with narcissistic doctors and psychiatrists. I think they are particularly attracted to this semi-rural backwater.

    A particular feature of narcissists that I have noticed is that they “flock together”, i.e., they admire and defend each other, and consequently appear as an organized block to anyone requiring treatment who refuses to grovel in their presence.

    Reply
    • It’s true that these narc doctors love to defend each other and show each other the greatest respect to boost up each other’s ego. They see themselves as being on the same level, way above their little dumbfuck patients of course.

      A typical example of my general practictioner who wrote a referal letter to another doctor:

      He wrote my symptoms down of course referring to me in the third person that I then have to give to that other doctor as if I can’t explain those symptoms myself. Moreover I wanted to put the letter in my bag, but he was like ‘noonnononono, wait a minute !’
      As I hadn’t seen he was also preparing an envelop to put the referral letter inside with Dr X written on the envelop. It was so pathetic the way he insisted on showing his colleague the extra respect by not allowing me to leave with the referal letter as is, but it had to be put inside an envelop addressing him with his Dr title.

      I wish I had refused to give the letter back and instead would have crumbled it inside my fist and dumped it just like that into my bag to show the dipshits how I dont give a fuck of showing them the respect they THINK they earn.

  6. I went to med school in the 90s at a UC school. I estimate that in a class of 100 students, only about 10 to 20 of them were the real McCoy. I mean, normal, caring, smart, dedicated to helping people. You have to be firing on all cylinders to make a good doctor. And also the training encouraged the dehumanization of doctors in training so that even someone not full blown narcissistic could be pushed in that direction.

  8. I was very trusting of doctors until I came across a female GP who was deliberately fabricating non-existent problems and sending me to gynaecologists who forced me into a totally unnecessary D&C, the fabricated I had cancer, and sent me to a gynaecologist at a teaching hospital who forced me into a radical hysterectomy. He bullied, threatened, lied, misled and misinformed me into immediate surgery. I begged for another option as I knew deep down I had nothing wrong with my female organs. He went berserk and threatened me with chemotherapy if I didn’t have the surgery in 2 days. After informing me he was experienced at laparoscopic surgery, he botched it horrendously, and I found out in the aftermath he had a consultant showing him what to do, but still caused severe internal damage. When I look back at the treatment of these doctors, I knew they were not only narcissists, but sociopaths and psychopaths. The #5 profession psychopaths gravitate to is: SURGEON…. Nobody is safe when they go to the doctors…

  9. Yes, a narcissistic doctor is no easy feat. There will never never be a proper patient doctor treatment. After 2 years with my doctor, he gave up diagnosis, I became my own doctor, my injury on my neck, he used one finger to check. All those f situations you thought was ok. With erractic, some times go away, sometimes lie down. Learnt, narcissistic people vs normal general people are too powerful, sweetalking, crazy, erratic, jealousy. All fakeness.

  10. My mother is a narcissist doctor, a psychiatrist. I believe she also has borderline personality disorder. She has spent decades trying to sabotage my career, frindships, and anything I care about in life that she isn’t to be endlessly praised for. She has used her medical degree to convince others, including a psychiatrist I was trying to get help from because of the problems my mother was causing in my life, and tried to project her narcissism and bpd on me for the purpose of having me c omitted because I know the truth of how she operates and she had to silence me. I am under the impression the the majority of doctors are nnarcissist who do not care about anything but their egos being fed by their title, and the money they make to show the world their false superiority. Medicine is a business after all, and it not only gives a great income, it grants a social respect of superiority. Lower a doctors salary to $40k a year and the real doctors who care will remain, the vast majority will look elsewhere for their false ego feeding incomes.

  11. Because I am bound by a very specific settlement agreement, I must choose my words carefully. Having a negative experience with a specialist like those you described can have a profound and long lasting impact on your life. At this link (gvotour.wordpress.com) you can read (in a lawyer approved form) about my personal experience with a surgeon who operated on my now deceased wife who then sued me for defamation years later when I wrote about my experience.

  12. I found out after my ophthalmologist botched my pretty low prescription Lasik operation that he was a narcissist. After getting a second opinion I found that most refractive surgeons were narcissists in my opinion. My first surgeon would not speak to me afterwards and the only reason I sought out a second opinion was because of this.

    The biggest problem was that both of them lied. My first who said that my surgery would be the easiest he had done in months, that I would come out at least 20/15 because he could do this one with his eyes closed. That all changed when he dropped a F bomb during my surgery which was rather unnerving.

    I sought out the absolute best for a second opinion and even though I wasn’t jaded, from visit number one there was something about him that struck me as weird. To condense this he did another surgery that made things worse. He showed absolutely no remorse but said he would take care of it. He referred me to a surgeon in England who wanted $30,000 US. That one is definitely extremely arrogant but since I never went I don’t know if he is also a narcissist.

    The thing that gave away my first surgeon were reviews of him and his general I don’t care if I maimed you attitude. The thing that gave away my second surgeon was the fact he acted like he could do no wrong and lied to me for years. Then the bombshell that cemented it. His teenage daughter committed suicide. He actually played the pity card, I genuinely felt horrible for him. When he said “Oh well girls, what was I supposed to do to prevent it” I thought OK maybe he needs some kind of help.

    Then his son killed himself in his early 20s and he just tried to act like the kid never existed. These were his only two children, at the very least the common denominator was him. I started reading about narcissists and it hit me. How could I be so stupid? If this guy had no regrets about maiming me, what would it be like to be one of his kids?

    I read the posts on this blog and I can relate. The constant lying, the fact that they act nuts at times, the Hipaa violations, the sociopaths and psychopaths statement and finally “survivors” story. What this guys kids must of had to endure that eventually led them to committing suicide. He was on vacation in Europe within a month after his son killed himself. I lost most trust in doctors after all of this but there are still some good ones out there. My GP is one of them. I avoid ALL surgeons and specialists.

  13. I commented, above, 3 years ago, and now I do so again.

    In Britain, the cases of mass-murderer Harold Shipman, and TV presenter Jimmy Saville, were both high prominence and involved 2 people with narcissistic personality disorder.

    But the media made little of this fact because it, like British society as a whole, is riddled with professionals who have the same disorder.

    Saville went unnoticed at the BBC because he was surrounded with people with huge egos. He was “special”, so the rules could be bent for him and others like him, as they turned a blind eye to his obvious indiscretions..

  14. I was profoundly shocked when I took my baby son for his newborn assessment, and the gp I had trusted and liked commented on his hypospadius (a congenital malformation of the penis) and said in a nasty tone “Dicky doodle and a turned eye…but your Mum loves you”. It is a terrible moment when the mask of feigned decency is removed and the ugly reality of the flawed man underneath is revealed.

  15. I was also one of those people who believed that trusting your physician was all that was required for a good result. I was wrong. Many NPD doctors, and few pros. I’ve met both. The NPD ones are manipulators, and abuse people with blind hatred. They feel that there are no laws that can stop them from this hateful abuse they do, and they constantly want gratification from hurting people.

  17. I was searching for help with a narcissistic physician who has used his license to use and abuse women in order to gain control, admiration and sex. Complicating matters, , I have Borderline Personality Disorder. I was in a relationship with him for 7 years’ while he was separated from his wife (she found out about multiple affairs) and lied about his win-at-all-costs to get her back, all the while keeping me on through lies and false promises while spreading lies and defaming my character, going so far as to call me crazy and a fat, ugly hooker. My health was failing and he continued to use me saying he couldn’t treat me, yet carried on relationships with certain patients to which he’s denied. He then promised to pay for some oral surgery that was the culprit of my health problems and has reneged, claiming that I’ve misrepresented what he said. I’ve put down $3k towards the procedure as a down payment that I can’t get back. This article has opened my eyes and I’m thankful for all the information. I hope to find a lawyer in Southern California who can help me. I can only imagine all the others he’s hurt personally and professionally. He also has an opioid addiction. He is no good.

  18. My experiences:
    After a car accident at work, I was assigned to a workers’ comp orthopedic surgeon who suggested that I might need a spinal fusion. I was alarmed and went to my own orthopedic man who described that particular surgeon as “evil” and said that he was under some kind of review by a county association, and that I didn’t need a fusion. I brought my wife in for my last consult. The surgeon lied in his report and said that we asked for the fusion.
    In another incident, a urologist lied on his report and said that I was having nighttime urination issues, just so he could perform surgery. I never said anything to that effect.
    Just yesterday, I had my third visit to my new primary. I let it go in my last visit when he said that my BMI was a whopping 39, but he contradicted that by saying that we all, him included, are a little overweight, so it was no big deal. Well, yesterday he claimed my weight soared from my last visit (it didnt- it was exactly the same as the previous visit). He blamed a whopping 39 BMI number that was on my chart on his staff, who put my height at 5 feet. REALLY??? He didn’t question that when he saw it during my last visit? And I’m starting to sense an attitude with this guy, so just another red flag. Time to start shopping for a new doctor.
