Psychiatrist Joseph Bargellini gets probation for asking patient sexual questions

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 3:55 pm

On February 2, 2013, the New York Department of Health suspended psychiatrist Joseph Bargellini for three years, stayed the suspension, and placed his license on probation with a practice monitor for the duration of the suspension period.

Bargellini was found to have committed professional misconduct for, among other things, asking inappropriate questions of a sexual nature and making inappropriate comments of a sexual nature to both a female patient and a female co-employee.

He was also found to have committed moral unfitness in that he lied on an employment application for hospital privileges, knowingly concealing two previous employment terminations.
