Northwell Health recently sent form letters to Dr. Paduch’s patients informing them that he is “no longer a Northwell Health Physician Partners Urologist” as of April 11, 2023. You can read a copy of that letter here. Nowhere in this letter does Northwell Health inform its patients that Dr. Paduch has been accused of sexual abuse by dozens of patients, or that he was recently indicted under federal charges for the sexual abuse of minor patients.

Tucker Coburn began seeing Dr. Paduch as a minor but was sexually abused by him as an adult starting in June 2016. Dr. Paduch abused him under the guise of treatment. In January 2017, a concerned nurse at New York Presbyterian gave Tucker’s contact information to another patient who was seeing Dr. Paduch. This patient was also being sexually abused by Dr. Paduch. After Tucker stopping seeing Dr. Paduch in 2019, he learned Dr. Paduch was employed by Northwell Health. Tucker reported Dr. Paduch to the local police department. Tucker also contacted Northwell’s hospital administrative staff and physicians, met with them, and reported the abuse by Dr. Paduch. Northwell failed to prevent Dr. Paduch from seeing and abusing their patients. Tucker also alerted a nurse at New York Presbyterian, who failed to respond to his report.

Tucker was interviewed by CBS News about his experience with Dr. Paduch. Watch the interview here.
