Harley Street dentist says he ‘didn’t plan to have sex with patient at Savoy hotel’

A Harley Street dentist to the stars who slept with a patient after wining and dining her at the Savoy said he only had a condom with him to carry water in an emergency.

Dr Sahil Patel, 28, said he had the contraceptive in his bag ‘for several years’ after attending a survival course.

The dentist twice met up with the woman at a pub in north London after providing her with his mobile phone number.

He then took the patient out to dinner at the Savoy on November 1 last year after completing her veneer treatment.

They carried on drinking until after midnight, when the dentist said he could not get home ‘as there are no underground trains,’ the General Dental Council heard.

Dr Patel then went to the patient’s hotel room across the street and had sex with her, the tribunal heard.

The dentist is said to have referred to the woman a ‘Jewish princess’ but he denies using the phrase.

The disciplinary hearing is being held in Marylebone, central London, near The Harley Street Smile Clinic, where Dr Patel is an associate dentist.

The clinic lists former Everton and Scotland striker Andy Gray among its clients as well as TOWIE stars including Lauren Pope, James Lock, Frankie Essex and Kirk Norcross.

Giving evidence, Dr Patel admitted if the condom ‘was present without context then, yes it would show pre-planning’.

But he maintained he kept it ‘in a field craft kit which has been in my bag for several years, incidentally, since attending a training course. It’s used for water retention’.

He claimed ‘Patient A’ asked him to have sex a second time at the hotel.

In his witness statement, he said he turned her down because he was tired, and added today, ‘We couldn’t anyway, due to a lack of contraception’.

Dr Patel is said to have passed her his mobile number on September 27 last year and gone for a drink with her at the White Horse Pub in Parsons Green, south-west London.

He had taken her for dinner at the five-star Savoy after completing her veneer treatment in November last year.

They carried on drinking until after midnight, when the dentist said he couldn’t get home ‘as there are no underground trains,’ the General Dental Council (GDC) heard.

Dr Patel went to the patient’s hotel room across the street and had sex with her, the tribunal heard.

He is said to have referred to her as a ‘Jewish princess’, but he denies using the phrase.

SAVOY DATE

Dr Patel is an associate dentist at The Harley Street Smile Clinic, which lists TOWIE stars Lauren Pope, James Lock, Frankie Essex and Kirk Norcross among its clients.

The clinic’s website said Dr Patel had created “the smiles of several reality TV personalities, Members of Parliament, professional athletes, and social media influencers”.

Dr Patel emailed ‘patient A’ his mobile number on September 27 last year and they went for a drink.

He met her again on October 3 and kissed her and the Savoy date was arranged, it is claimed.

Sam Thomas, for the GDC, said: “She had travelled from the south coast where she lived to London to make an appointment with the registrant on 1 November.

“This was the third of three appointments in order to have veneers placed on her teeth.

“The appointment on 1 November finished at approximately 3pm and at 7.15pm on that same day the registrant and patient A met at the Savoy Hotel.

“They are at the restaurant and they moved to an adjacent bar where they drank until after midnight.

“The pair then went across the road to a hotel opposite the Savoy and had sexual intercourse.”

The misconduct panel heard the dentist’s lawyer has raised the issue as to whether patient A was a current patient of Dr Patel.

The pair then went across the road to a hotel opposite the Savoy and had sexual intercourse.

Mr Thomas added: “The council say that patient A was due to be seen in 12 months time following the third of the three appointments.

“So we accept that on 1 November 2019 the treatment had finished but there was due to be a review in November 2020.

“Further the council say that there was a five-year guarantee with regard to

Sydney dentist Peter Carr performed surgery on female patient while his genitals were exposed

A Sydney dentist who was found guilty of indecently assaulting a young dental nurse also performed surgery on a patient with his genitals exposed.

Peter David Carr, 76, is currently suspended from practice but is now facing disciplinary action by the Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC), including the cancellation of his registration.

The New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) found the dentist guilty of unsatisfactory and unethical conduct for working with his genitals exposed and tying another patient’s wrists and ankles together with computer cables.

Details of his conduct at the Smile Care Dental practice in Double Bay were released by the tribunal this week.

It included an incident in May 2016 in which he performed surgery while his genitals, “namely his semi-erect penis and testicles, were inappropriately exposed and hanging out of his jeans zipper”.

A younger female dental nurse noticed his physical state after picking an item off the floor, seeing his genitals protruding under his dental gown.

Documents showed Dr Carr explained his version of the incident to the Dental Council of NSW several months later, stating he may have forgotten to secure his trouser buttons after going to the bathroom in a hurry and was most likely not wearing underpants.

The tribunal also found him guilty over a separate incident in November 2016 in which he administered a female patient with the drug Triazolam, including one dose which was inhaled through her nose from a rolled-up banknote.

He also tied his patient’s wrists and legs together with computer cables before a procedure to fit the patient with 10 veneers.

In response, Dr Carr stated the patient requested her hands and legs to be tied together as she would be more comfortable.

The hearing was told Dr Carr also lacked adequate training to safely administer Triazolam and failed to identify that the patient had previously taken another drug, Stilnox.

In relation to his previous convictions, the tribunal found Dr Carr also failed to notify the Dental Board of Australia within seven days, after being charged and found guilty for being in possession of cocaine at a Darlinghurst nightclub in February 2016.

Dr Carr was given a good behaviour bond for cocaine possession.

‘It put chills down my spine’: Previous patient of suspended Bedford dentist haunted by painful memories | Local | News

When Scott Wolfe saw the photo of his dentist from 30 years ago circulating on social media, he was overwhelmed by a flood of emotions.

“It put chills down my spine,” he said.

The photo is of Errol Gaum, a long-time practising pediatric dentist in HRM, whose clinic is now in Bedford. It was shared on a Facebook group alongside numerous accounts from patients and parents who came forward to accuse Gaum of using excessive force and doing procedures without consent.

Wolfe, who is 39 years old now, hadn’t been to Gaum’s practice once or twice. Gaum was his dentist for three years and every visit was filled with pain. Wolfe remembers being pinned down by the dentist and his assistant as he sat in the chair. He recalls having allergies as a little boy and being threatened for breathing through his mouth, instead of his stuffed-up nose. 

“They’d become incredibly rude and very disrespectful,” he said. “(They) told me that I’d be in a lot of trouble if I if I didn’t start breathing through my nose because I was steaming up their dental mirror.”

Wolfe would beg his mom every time not to go to the dentist.

Wolfe’s mom, Florence Wolfe, was never allowed in the room with him. Sitting in the waiting room, she would hear him crying.

“You just want to automatically run to them,” she said.

One memory Florence has is of Gaum giving her son a denture. When she asked what the denture was for, she was told it was to “correct her son’s speech.”

Two weeks later, Scott lost his denture, and his mother called the dentist to have it replaced but was told it wasn’t necessary. Florence still wonders why it was suddenly OK for her son to go without the denture when it was essential only a couple of weeks ago.

Despite all the strange occurrences and her son’s reluctance to go to the dentist, Florence didn’t think there was something wrong at the time.

“(I) chalked it up to just being a nervous child at the dentist. Because I never dreamt of what was going on in there. I had no idea what was going on in there.”

Wolfe, who has a two-year old daughter, said he thinks the reason Gaum’s alleged misconduct wasn’t exposed till now is the idea that children don’t like to go to the dentist. But he said parents shouldn’t blame themselves or feel guilty for sending their children to Gaum because they couldn’t have known.

“Those feelings are for sure natural … and I wouldn’t expect you not to feel that way,” he said.

“But you’re trusting a professional, just like you would trust a doctor. … And you’re trusting your child in their hands to get … good medical help. And you think even though it’s a bad experience, or they’re having a tough time with it, it’s for the greater good.”

It’s not the parents’ fault that Gaum failed their trust, he said.

Dentist Abandons Patient Mid-Surgical Procedure After Hectic Fight with Colleague

Mirna Domínguez went to La Paz Dental Group to get a dental prosthesis and asked for a loan of $8,000 from the Lending Point financial group to pay for the procedure. Her common visit to the dentist office, quickly turned into a nightmare.

According to Domínguez, the dentist who was removing one of her molars engaged in a heated fight with one of her colleague’s and didn’t finish her surgical procedure.

“My dentist and another doctor started fighting right in the middle of my surgical treatment,” Domínguez said. “The dentist got up and told me that she was done, and she left me with a deep wound and only a cotton pad on my tooth. I asked her for an explanation, but she just said no, no, no, I can’t do the job anymore.”

Dominguez was then forced to leave the dental office with the unfinished procedure and seek help in an emergency room.

“The dentist made a cut to remove a nerve from my tooth, but then she left it open, and when the anesthesia passed, I began to have severe pain,” said Domínguez, who was forced to visit another doctor to “finish the procedure.”

After the unfortunate experience, Dominguez informed La Paz Dental Group that she would no longer return and that she wanted to cancel their services. She requested a refund but the dental office refused.

“They told me that they couldn’t give me anything back because they had already started my procedure.”

Dominguez then sought help from our sister station, Telemundo 52. Telemundo contacted La Paz Dental Group, but the office refused to speak about the incident. The news station then contacted Lending Point, the financial group Dominguez requested a loan from.

After reviewing the case, Lending Point said that La Paz Dental Group never informed them about the incident with Dominguez.

Lending Point also stated that given the circumstances, they did cancel Domínguez’s debt at the dental office and that Dominguez could use the money to pay for the emergency services she had received elsewhere.

Conning is Proud to Announce its Newest Focus Series-Commercial Automobile Insurance-Medicine for an Ailing Patient

HARTFORD, Conn., Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Commercial automobile insurance results have been troubled for over a decade. With a combined ratio averaging 107% since 2010 and underwriting losses more than $20 billion, commercial auto is the poorest-performing commercial insurance line.

The Conning Focus Series, “Commercial Automobile Insurance–Medicine for an Ailing Patient” analyzes drivers of commercial auto’s continued underperformance and presents solutions to restore the line to health. The analysis identifies and explores root causes of commercial auto’s underperformance, some of which are underappreciated or overlooked.  Because the causes of the line’s poor results are multi-faceted, the road to recovery must be pursued on multiple fronts.

“The main tool commercial auto insurers deploy to improve results is increasing rates. Rate increases alone are not enough to get ahead of loss costs, which are often driven by liability claim inflation,” said Jerry Theodorou, a Director, Insurance Research at Conning.

“Insurers must recognize practices that inflate claims, call them out, and deal with them. Insurers that understand and address the root causes of claim inflation will be the first to get their commercial auto portfolios back to profitability,” added Steve Webersen, Head of Insurance Research.

Commercial Automobile Insurance–Medicine for an Ailing Patient” is available for purchase from Conning by calling (888) 707-1177 or by visiting www.conningresearch.com.

Chesapeake OB-GYN admits backdating patient consent forms but denies unnecessary surgeries

Dr. Javaid Perwaiz knew that government-funded Medicaid insurance required that patients consent to sterilization surgeries at least 30 day before they were performed.

And yet he admitted during testimony Thursday in his criminal trial in U.S. District Court in Norfolk that he frequently backdated the forms to make it appear he’d complied with the rule, which prosecutors said was created decades ago to prevent low-income women from being pressured into getting sterilized.

“It was to help the patients,” Perwaiz said of his backdating practice.

Each had already expressed a desire to get sterilized more than 30 days before the procedure was done, he said, and he didn’t want to make them wait any longer. Even the ones who’d first come to him just a few days before getting procedures done had told another doctor they wanted it, he said.

Also, some were close to having their Medicaid insurance run out and he wanted to ensure they got the surgery while still covered. Perwaiz said he always informed them the procedure was permanent, but also told them it could be reversed later.

The 70-year-old doctor’s testimony came during the 11th day of his trial on 61 counts of fraud.

The trial began Oct. 14 and is expected to last several more days. Prosecutors have alleged Perwaiz performed numerous unnecessary surgeries and procedures on his patients for years in order to fund a lavish lifestyle.

The doctor first took the witness stand in his own defense Wednesday, testified all of Thursday, and is set to return Monday when the trial resumes.

During testimony Thursday, Perwaiz also conceded he never used scopes with cameras that could project what he was seeing inside the patient onto a monitor in the operating room — a common practice used by all the other OB-GYNs doing surgery at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center.

Perwaiz said the equipment wasn’t available when he was training in the 1970s, nor was it something he was comfortable using, or was required to use.

But the longtime physician strongly denied ever doing surgeries that weren’t medically necessary, or inducing pregnant patients to deliver their babies earlier than was medically safe. Prosecutors have alleged he regularly induced pregnant women early in order to make sure he was the one to deliver the baby and get paid for it.

Assistant U.S. District Attorney Elizabeth Yusi asked Perwaiz to explain why most of his pregnant patients in 2019 had their labors induced early, and almost always on Saturdays when he was at the hospital performing surgeries.

Perwaiz said that there were risks with letting a patient go beyond 39 weeks of pregnancy and he was trying to prevent that.

While prosecutors contend that the inductions were routinely scheduled at 38 weeks of pregnancy — which the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says is unsafe for the mother and baby — the doctor said he always did them in the 39th week.

He also said he was proud that his rate of cesarean section

Humanigen Announces First Patient Dosed at MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Phase 3 Clinical Study of Lenzilumab in COVID-19

Humanigen, Inc. (HGEN) (“Humanigen”), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on preventing and treating an immune hyper-response called ‘cytokine storm’ with lenzilumab, today announced that MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C. treated its first COVID-19 patient with lenzilumab. The primary goal of this Phase 3 randomized, double-blind, multicenter, placebo-controlled clinical trial is to determine if lenzilumab can help hospitalized patients with COVID-19 recover faster. As many as 89% of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 are at risk of a complication called cytokine storm, a harmful inflammation that has been the leading cause of COVID-19 death. MedStar Washington Hospital Center is one of 18 sites in the U.S. approved to enroll eligible patients to study lenzilumab, designed specifically to stop this storm. Eligible patients can participate in this trial while also receiving other standard-of-care therapies as recommended by their treating physician.

“Given the growing number of cases in the D.C. area seen in the past few weeks, we were particularly motivated to ensure our Phase 3 study was enrolling and accessible,” said Cameron Durrant, MD, MBA, chief executive officer of Humanigen. “We have been impressed with the hospital leadership and trial investigators at MedStar Washington, and worked together with speed and efficiency to get this trial location ready to enroll patients.”

For more information on participating in the Phase 3 COVID-19 trial of lenzilumab, please visit StopStorm.com, and talk to your doctor to see if you may be eligible to participate.

More details on Humanigen’s programs in COVID-19 can be found on the Company’s website at www.humanigen.com under the COVID-19 tab, and details of the U.S. Phase 3 potential registration study can be found at clinicaltrials.gov using Identifier NCT04351152.

About Humanigen, Inc.

Humanigen, Inc. is developing its portfolio of clinical and pre-clinical therapies for the treatment of cancers and infectious diseases via its novel, cutting-edge GM-CSF neutralization and gene-knockout platforms. We believe that our GM-CSF neutralization and gene-editing platform technologies have the potential to reduce the inflammatory cascade associated with coronavirus infection. The company’s immediate focus is to prevent or minimize the cytokine release syndrome that precedes severe lung dysfunction and ARDS in serious cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection. The company is also focused on creating next-generation combinatory gene-edited CAR-T therapies using strategies to improve efficacy while employing GM-CSF gene knockout technologies to control toxicity. In addition, the company is developing its own portfolio of proprietary first-in-class EphA3-CAR-T for various solid cancers and EMR1-CAR-T for various eosinophilic disorders. The company is also exploring the effectiveness of its GM-CSF neutralization technologies (either through the use of lenzilumab™ as a neutralizing antibody or through GM-CSF gene knockout) in combination with other CAR-T, bispecific or natural killer (NK) T cell engaging immunotherapy treatments to break the efficacy/toxicity linkage, including to prevent and/or treat graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) in patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Additionally, Humanigen and Kite, a Gilead Company, are evaluating lenzilumab in combination with Yescarta® (axicabtagene ciloleucel) in patients with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma in a clinical

Funds set for EU cross-borders patient transfers

BRUSSELS — The president of the European Commission said it will make 220 million euros available to help EU member states organize the cross-borders transfer of COVID-19 patients.

Speaking Thursday after a video conference of EU’s 27 leaders, Ursula von der Leyen urged European countries to better cooperate in their fight against the deadly virus, which has killed more than 210,000 people across the continent.

Confronted to a massive surge of infections, many EU countries have reintroduced partial lockdowns as they try to avoid reaching a saturation point in their hospitals. Belgium, for instance, has warned the capacity of the country’s intensive care units could be reached in the next two weeks if the pace of new infections is not slowed, meaning patients could need to be transferred abroad.

“If we have more data sharing on ICU capacity, and where capacity is lacking, we can increase the cross-border patient care and it can be organized early enough,” Von der Leyen said. “The good use of the money requires good information exchange.


Von der Leyen also insisted on the necessity of improving the tracing of COVID-19 cases via mobile applications, and to quickly validate at EU level the so-called antigen tests, which are less reliable than the PCR tests but produce results in about 15 minutes.
