DC Department of Behavioral Health
64 New York Avenue, NE
Washington, DC 20002
I have received psychiatric treatment provided by the D.C. Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) since the year 1996, 20 years. On Monday February 1, 2016, I was advised by Monica Acharya, M.D., attending physician at the K Street Clinic (35 K Street, Washington, DC), that DBH was involuntarily terminating my psychiatric treatment with Alice E. Stone, M.D., a third-year psychiatry resident working under the supervision of Earle Baughman, M.D. (St. Elisabeths Hospital). Dr. Acharya told me that I needed to see an experienced psychiatrist, and that DBH has no experienced psychiatrists who can treat me. Dr. Acharya made no effort to help me locate alternative treatment.
I am a resident of the District of Columbia; I have been diagnosed with severe (psychotic) mental illness including paranoid schizophrenia. DBH has a legal duty to provide psychiatric treatment. DBH's treatment refusal is a violation of DC law and may also be contrary to applicable federal law.
I need to remind you of troubling aspects of my history.
1. Dennis M. Race, Esq., (202 887-4028) senior counsel with my former employer, the law firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, determined, in consultation with a practicing psychiatrist, that I was potentially violent and unemployable. Mr. Race concluded that I posed a direct threat in the workplace.
2. I have been under federal investigation by the U.S. Secret Service as a potential security risk to former President Bill Clinton.
3. I have been under federal investigation by the U.S. Secret Service as a potential security risk to President Obama.
4. I have been under federal investigation by the U.S. Marshals Service as a potential security risk to U.S. District Court Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle. At the time of the investigation the USMS imposed temporary protective measures against me.
5. I was advised by the U.S. Capitol Police that my name has been placed on a federal watch list of potentially violent felons.
6. In the year 2004 10 MPDC officers and 4 FBI agents were dispatched to my residence based on concerns that I might become armed and extremely dangerous.
7. I am completely isolated socially. I have no friends or social contacts of any kind. My only relative is a sister who lives in New Jersey. I rarely see her. I live within walking distance of the federal district in Washington, DC. I suffer from profound loneliness. Psychological testing performed in the year 2014 disclosed that I am "extremely paranoid."
I strongly urge the DC Department of Behavioral Health to locate appropriate psychiatric treatment for me. I am sure several U.S. Congressmen would be interested to learn about DBH's handling of my case.
