A prominent Johns Hopkins doctor has been accused of bullying staff and pressuring them to give second opinions that aligned with his wife’s diagnoses. The allegations are detailed in a report by The Joint Commission, an independent organization that accredits hospitals.
Dr. Jonathan Epstein is the director of surgical pathology at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is a well-respected doctor with over 35 years of experience. However, in recent months, he has been accused of bullying and intimidating his staff.
The Joint Commission report found that Dr. Epstein had engaged in a “pattern of intimidating and bullying behavior.” The report also found that Dr. Epstein had pressured staff to change their diagnoses to match those of his wife, Dr. Hillary Epstein, who is also a pathologist.
The allegations against Dr. Epstein have had a significant impact on the Johns Hopkins community. Many staff members have said that they feel afraid and intimidated to work with Dr. Epstein. Some staff members have even left the hospital as a result of the bullying.
Dr. Epstein has denied the allegations against him. He has said that he is “committed to creating a positive and supportive work environment for my staff.” Johns Hopkins Hospital has also said that it is taking the allegations seriously and is investigating the matter.
