On February 21, 2013 I was admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital- Westchester Division for help with Depression. Instead of recieving help I was faced with a doctor who was cold, emotionless and controlling. My knowledge and education intimidated her and I was punished. I was brought to court and forcibly medicated because of the ruthless lies she told both in person on the stand and in documentation. Although my attorney had caught her in countless lies the judge still sent me back and gave Dr. Xiaoelei Y. Baran M.D. Psychiatrist the power to forcibly medicate me.
I have recieved my chart from the hospital and I can affirm that Dr. Xiaoelei Baran purjured herself and the documents are there to back it up.
As a future Social Worker it's not only about me but about countless other patients both past and future that she has done this to and could do this to. We as human beings can't allow someone who has been given the privledge to take care of others to abuse it as she has. Please join me and sign this petition so that another patient doesn't get hurt by Dr. Baran. More info can be found on my youtube video
The abuse I was subjected to and my name being tarnished is still to unreal to believe. I am studying to be a mental health professional in one of the top schools and because I was remanded by the courts it will forever follow me through my life.
The abuse of power in the system needs to be uncovered and what the doctors and the judicial system is getting away with is far to real to ever imagine. Yes I suffer from a mental illness but that does not give anyone the right to violate me in any way.
I am asking that Dr. Baran be not only investigated for medical misconduct, perjury, fraud, but have her medical license taken away from her so she can never again harm another patient.
