I have met with many victims of former Johns Hopkins doctor Nikita Levy amidst allegations that he secretly filmed patients during exams. If you were a patient of Dr. Nikita Levy it is imperative to contact me as soon as possible to learn of your legal rights. Dr Levy was by all accounts a well respected Doctor at Hopkins and few saw the warning signs.
Dr.Nikita Levy had practiced medicine in the field of OB/GYN for over 20 years at Johns Hopkins East Baltimore Community Clinic.It is believed that he saw over 1,000 patients during his time there.He allegedly committed suicide last week at his Towson home as the scurrilous allegations that he secretly filmed his patients during examinations become national news.Dr.Levy may have allegedly used a pen equipped with a tiny camera that he kept in his pocket while examining his patients. It is not known at this time what he did with those recordings, whether he kept them for himself or distributed them in some manner. All that is known is that officials are combing through a veritable mountain of evidence found in Dr. Levy’s home and office. Hopkins board of directors is funding its own investigation amidst speculation from Dr. Levy’s former patients that they did not do enough to warn patients of the doctors actions.The doctor was let go by Hopkins on February 8 for undisclosed reasons and his patients only found out in retrospect what their former doctor had allegedly done. More investigation needs to be done in this case to determine the hospital’s culpability and whether or not Hopkins failed to protect their patients right to privacy.Patients have expressed shock and outrage that in a prestigious institution such as Johns Hopkins a doctor could have been possibly filming his patients without their knowledge for what may have been years.Patients have been instructed to call a hotline in which they get a recording and are told to leave their name and number and someone will get back to them.Many think that this is not sufficient and have expressed a desire to know more information and their legal rights and in this instance should contact me.Authorities need to comb through a tremendous amount of material and patients need legal representation to make sure their case has been looked after with the respect it deserves.
