Gynecologist hid camera has become a top news trending topic on search engines this week as ABC News reported this Thursday, Feb. 28, that the investigation of a gynecologist at a Johns Hopkins Hospital accused of having a hidden camera in his pen during examinations is drawing to a close. An employee has come forward and reported the doctor of secretly videotaping his patients with the camera-pen.
According to reports, the employee opened up on her suspicions of Dr. Nikita Levy early this month. The employee’s submitted report led police officials to find that Dr. Levy was video-recording his patients during their gynecology exams at a local Hopkins clinic. The accused suspect committed suicide this Feb. 18.
The hospital’s CEO letter from the employee noted that she believed there was a device in a writing pen that Dr. Levy was wearing around his neck while he examined his patients. She professed the device to be a hidden camera.
Rothman writes that Hopkins security personnel questioned Levy at his office on Feb. 5, and devices similar to the one described by the employee were seen in the office and on Levy. Detectives have also since found concrete evidence of videos taken prior to the gynecologist hid camera headline made the news.
Over 2,000 patients of the former Dr. Levy and others have called a hotline the hospital recently set up, and lawsuits have been filed against Johns Hopkins.
