    Strange that all of the review dates except one were from yesterday or today. One would wonder how that happened?

    If the accusations are true then there should be sweeping removals of licenses to practice and outright professional ostracizing.

    If proven true, can she be sued for attempted murder (by denying the medication) or man slaughter?

    glad to see there is some action going on here on this "psychiatrist" ... tweeted and facebook update - lets hope more people hear about this inappropriate response from a "medical professional" who should be disciplined by her professional Boards. Disgrace to psychiatry!

    deplorable. i have recently had the most hurtful accusations hurled against me by evangelical Christians- who in truth just hide behind the white robe of 'God' without any personal accountability. I despise people that dispense with the term 'God' so liberally so as to diminish its true power. Anybody that preaches as such does not understand the ways of the spirit, and of true compassion and understanding - of love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation. that we are all the same Being in different disguises. this incident made me sick to my stomach.

    I am speechless. She should be struck off and not allowed to practice any more. It´s as simple as that. her unprofessionalism is a danger to her patients.

    what is truly interesting is this die hard christians fail to remember that same sex unions used to be a REQUIRED part of coming of age for EVERY member of society....obviously those practices are not still in effect but it is a part of the christian history none the less.... as a psychology major myself I find her actions to be absurd as a medical professional and a scientist she should know better then to allow ANYTHING to cloud her judgement like that when it comes to treating someone in need of help.

    they don´t fail to remember, they never knew. Their understanding of religion is paper thin, limited to what their ignorant, bigoted pastors tell them.

    I agree, but the accusations do come from a psych patient, so I'm going to let the legal system deal with this one.

    I don't want her to die though, I'd just want to ruin her life forever. I wish I could be a demon. My birthday is coming up soon, who's granting me my wish?

    Co-sign. This story is terribly written ... solely sourcing it to the person making the claim is shoddy journalism.

    I'm guessing there might be more to this story than we know.

    Yep, the big IF. And you know how things like this generally work out.

    Dollars to doughnuts that it isn’t true and there are the repercussions of defamation that the doctor should consider pursuing.

    You got it. And why malpractice coverage rates are so high for this specialty.

    I think it would be dealt with by the legal system regardless of what kind of patient made the accusations.

    I am fortunate to be a member of a church that welcomes gay men and women. The priest in charge has even lobbied to have the state recognize same-sex marriage. He believes that the denial of such rights to gay men and women is one of the last civil rights issues to be recognized. There are gay men and women on the vestry which, in the denomination, is the equivalent of the board of directors of a corporation.
