Dr. Nikita Levy, a gynecologist at East Baltimore Medical Center, was recently let go by Johns Hopkins for secretly photographing and videotaping patients. According to the Baltimore Sun, “police uncovered what they called an ‘extraordinary’ amount of evidence at Levy’s Towson home.”
Schochor, Federico and Staton has commenced an investigation on behalf of a number of victims to determine what has occurred. The alleged wrongdoing on the part of Dr. Levy would constitute a clear violation of patient privacy. It is completely inappropriate for medical professionals to keep any photographs or video obtained as part of the doctor-patient relationship–especially those taken without the patient’s knowledge or consent.
We at Schochor, Federico and Staton have represented victims in similar circumstances. Most recently, we were a leader of a class action suit against a Delaware pediatrician, helping secure a settlement of over $123 million.*
If you are one of the many former patients of Dr. Levy, who practiced at the Johns Hopkins East Baltimore Medical Center, we urge you to reach out for our legal advice to ensure your rights are protected and that justice is served.
