About The Darius Paduch Case

Darius Paduch, a predator male Urologist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, has been criminally indicted for abusing and taking advantage of several underage and adult patients. The allegations against Paduch involve a pattern in which he performed invasive and unnecessary "diagnostic techniques" under the guise of medical treatment and education.

The discovery of Paduch's abuse has led to numerous civil lawsuits, with dozens of more patients coming forward since the first lawsuit was filed in December.

Darius Paduch's sexual abuse is part of a long-standing pattern of violating patient trust at Columbia and NYPH. Patient safety should be a top priority, yet NYPH prioritized reputation over patient well-being, allowing serial predators to harm unsuspecting patients.

It is not enough for these violations of trust to simply be acknowledged and swept under the rug. Accountability and justice are crucial for victims of Paduch's abuse and all patients failed by violations of trust.
