NY Docs Accused Of Gay Sex Coverup

2007_7young-frankenstein-1.jpg
A New York doctor may have been prescribing good loving.

Former assistant Antoinette Lloyd, accuses Dr. Benjamin Grundfast of having sex with a patient. When she refused to cover it up, she says, Grundfast and his peers gave her the unceremonious boot.

[Lloyd] claims she was fired in June 2006 after she refused to change records to falsely show that she was always present in an examination room with Dr. Benjamin Grundfast and a younger male patient.

Grundfast, an orthopedic specialist, “told me he had a sexual affair” with the man, sometimes having sex in the examination room, sometimes elsewhere, Lloyd said.

The doctor “told me he bought a wig and lingerie, so [the patient] could envision he was a girl” when they had sex, she said.

Grundfast, 57, is not a party in the lawsuit. Reached outside his office at Cardiology & Internal Medicine of Long Island, in Massapequa, he said only, “It’s not true.”

Lloyd charged that she was also asked to lie to state officials investigating Grundfast in an unrelated malpractice suit.

Lloyd said that when she refused to lie to investigators or alter patient records, she was told by an office manager, “If you aren’t going to be a team player and change the chart, then we have decided to let you go.”

This sounds awfuly fishy. Sure, it’s plausible, but would someone – a doctor, especially – be inclined to say something like, “Perform this illegal act or we’ll fire you”? That’s like begging for a lawsuit!
