State issues negligence complaint against “stem cell” psychiatrist William Rader

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 11:38 am

On March 22, 2013, the Medical Board of California issued an Accusation against psychiatrist William C. Rader, alleging gross negligence, repeated negligent acts, false and/or misleading advertising, disseminating false or misleading statements, dishonesty or corruption, general unprofessional conduct and violation of the state medical practice act.

These charges all regard Rader’s treatment of four patients with fetal stem cell therapy; recommending they undergo such therapy when there is no medical evidence that such therapy could benefit the patients; failing to properly evaluate patients prior to recommending the therapy and failing to provide concise, understandable and accurate information regarding the potential risks and benefits of the therapy.

Additionally, Rader is charged with maintaining two websites and published a book which contain statements that “it is well established that fetal stem cell therapy has no negative side effects.” The website contain other false and/or misleading statements.



  1. It’s about time!!!! William Rader has scammed thousands of people out of their life savings. The majority of his victims are children He preys on the desperation of parents with sick and dying children. He should be given the death penalty, at the very least!!!

    • Yes, it looks pretty bad. Unfortunately, the death penalty is not among the disciplinary actions that the state can take. : )

  2. I know that you are aware that Robert Shapiro is defending the fraud, proving that birds of a feather flock together. I’m sure that Shapiro is a real charmer but he doesn’t fool me. Anyone who defends the most vile offenders, is as bad as they are. It never ceases to amaze me of the preponderance of individuals, who lack conscience and ethics, selling their souls for greed, whether it be wealth, power or fame or all three.

    This pretty much describes and defines the snake oil salesmen and his snake charming lawyer:

    A fraud defending a fraud.
