An attorney representing Atlanta lawsuits against a dermatologist who was seen singing and dancing while doing surgeries says nearly 100 women have called to say they have suffered in her care.
Attorney Susan Witt, who is representing the family of a bride to be, Icilma Cornelius, who went in for a tummy tuck and liposuction in 2016 with Dr. Windell Boutte’s, and was left brain dead, tells CNN she has had ‘more phone calls and emails’ than she can respond to.
Boutte’s public YouTube channel, which has since been taken down, showed the board certified dermatologist performing surgeries while singing, dancing and cavorting over her exposed patients.
Witt says many of the women who have come forward did so because they felt Boutte had a lack of care and concern for her patients.
Additionally, at least two of the women who came forward to Witt said that they were able to identify themselves in the YouTube videos.
‘I think in this day and age, patients do have to be their own advocate,’ Witt said. ‘This has been a cautionary tale which I believe patients can learn from.’
