A psychiatrist records are probably some of the worst cases for personal information getting out as there’s a lot about you in such files. This doctor was just dumb and what did he get for his practice, $7500.00, not much. There’s not a big market these days for small practices so he probably just took the first cash offer. He is not in violation of the law but the buyer is and is now in jail.
There were around 1000 patients in the files and one patient said she had no idea he was selling and had an appointment scheduled for December. Right now they can’t find the sister of the criminal who has the laptop with the medical records. The buyer was already a convicted thief in the area of identity theft.
