Attorney: Ex-patient feels threatened by psychiatrist

 

In an odd case of “medical malpractice” and harassment New York Newsday reports:

 

Richard Karpf was bullied as a child and kicked out of his apartment by roommates while attending a Mexican medical school.

 

Dennis White started having panic attacks when he was 6 and suffered from sleep disorders and depression as an adult.

 

Their lives crossed in 1996 when Karpf became White’s psychiatrist. Six years later, White called police and said Karpf had revealed a plot to kill people and feed their dismembered bodies to sharks.

 

Yesterday, the two men met again as White’s medical malpractice trial against Karpf opened in State Supreme Court in Mineola.

 

If you’ve been harassed by a former doctor, psychiatrist, or perhaps a patient, please contact an attorney.
