DC Board of Medicine -- August 1993 Complaint Regarding the George Washington University Medical Center

August 26, 1993
3801 Connecticut Avenue, NW
#136
Washington, DC 20008

Warren Strudwick, MD
District of Columbia Board of
Medicine
605 G Street, NW
Washington, DC 20001

Dear Dr. Strudwick:

I offer the enclosed documentation relative to my letter to you dated August 20, 1993.

(1) George Washington University Medical Center Billing Information for evaluation session conducted on  September 1, 1992 by Dr. Napoleon Cuenco. DSM: 799.90 (diagnosis deferred on Axis 1).

(2) George Washington University Medical Center Billing Information for evaluation session conducted on September 8, 1992 by Dr. Napoleon Cuenco. DSM-III: 296.70 (bi-polar disorder).

(3) Handwritten notes prepared by my current treating psychiatrist, Dr. Suzanne M. Pitts, dated August 26, 1993, relating to planned telephone conference call with my sister, Mrs. Estelle Jacobson for Monday, August 30, 1993. Note Dr. Pitts’ current emphasis on anti-psychotic medication appropriate to the diagnosis paranoid (delusional) disorder, after my letter to the District of Columbia Board of Medicine on August 20, 1993.

The final paragraph of the notes discusses my letter to the District of Columbia Board of Medicine.  At my session with Dr. Pitts on Thursday, August 26, 1993, at which time she provided me with a copy of the notes I asked why she included this paragraph. She stated that my letter to the Medical Board may prompt the George Washington University Medical Center (GWU) to conclude that there is nothing more that it can do for me therapeutically. One wonders--if my letter is simply evidence of my deluded, paranoid thinking--why GWU would consider terminating my therapy because of the letter.

Sincerely,

Gary Freedman

Note the coincidence that a few weeks after I wrote a letter to Dr. Georgopoulos alleging that GWU was involved in the commission of a crime (violating the D.C. Mental Health Information Act), Dr. Georgopoulos diagnosed me with paranoid schizophrenia--a totally new diagnosis!

GWU had a seeming pattern of altering its behavior after I alleged wrongdoing. One wonders why GWU would consistently react to the statements of a person with psychotic mental illness.

I remember saying to my sister in August 1993: "If I told Dr. Pitts I believed she was involved in the Kennedy assassination, would she get angry about that?"
