NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Dr. Darius Paduch Sexual Abuse Investigation

Northwell Health urologist Dr. Darius Paduch has been accused of sexual abuse by multiple former patients in New York

Lieff Cabraser’s Survivors and Victims’ Rights practice group lawyers are investigating reports that NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Northwell Health urologist Dr. Darius Paduch sexually abused his urology patients since at least 2015. Even more disturbing are reports Paduch hired an underage intern who watched and videotaped Paduch performing sexual acts on his urology patients and himself over a 2-year period as part of the “internship training.”
