On September 8, 2013, psychiatrist Ruby Siddiqui Nadel surrendered her license to practice medicine in the state of New York.
In February 12, 2013, Nadel surrendered her medical license to the California Medical Board. That board initially suspended Nadel’s license in May 2012, following a call from Nadel in which she reported an attempted lawsuit against her for sexual harassment. Nadel is reported to have spoken in an illogical, disjointed and confusing manner, and admitted to engaging in conduct that violates the state Medical Practice Act. The investigator who subsequently interviewed Nadel in July 2011 noted that her home was in disarray, cluttered, and smelled strongly of cat urine due to her 22 cats. The investigator established that, among other things, Nadel’s disorganized and illogical speaking patterns were widespread; Nadel engaged in sexual relationships with patients; and did not keep medical records for patients she treated.
