Documents – Where’s the ?#@*&%! documents?”
By Ken Kramer
November 17, 2015

Last year, Joel Voss, a private investigator in Clearwater, Florida sent us his writeup of a psychiatrist, Ioan Pop, who was in hot water with the Florida Department of Health. We were happy to provide a resting place for Joel’s work. His writeup included this photo:

At the Waldorf-Astoria in NYC.

Psychiatrist Ioan Pop

According to the documents Joel dug up, Psychiatrist Pop kissed a female patient on the mouth, asked her about sex and called her four times after she was released. The patient was “fearful of rejecting Dr. Pop because he was the only physician who could authorize her release” but she did go to the police as Pop continued to call her. She allowed a police officer to listen in on one of Pop’s calls where he stated to her “not to discuss the incident at the hospital with anyone” and that he “liked her anatomy and her liked her tongue very much”.

We’re not sure what happened with the police but on November 20, 2013, Pop gave up his Florida license to practice psychiatry.

In September, Psych Pop wrote to us:

From: Ioan Pop [mailto:ioanpopmd@gmail.com]
Sent: Wednesday, September 2, 2015 1:37 PM
To: records@PsychSearch.net
Subject: Record

Dear Mr. Kramer,

Please erase my record/article from your website.

I relinquished my license, I moved outside of United States.

Please let me die in peace.

I informed DOH about the patient lies. Her information is false. Due to this info on the website I am in imminent divorce.

Respectfully,
Ioan Pop

Although I felt compassion for my fellow human who was on his death bed, something didn’t make sense.  Why the concern for the “record/article” at PsychSearch.net?

Using Googling translator we see a story in a Romanian newspaper mentioning Psych Pop. A photo was included in the story so we know we have the right Psych Pop: Ioan Pop Ioan Pop medic primar psihiatru- According to the article, he’s currently working as a psych in private practice at “Holy Mary” in Baia Mare!

So, we sent some documents to the Romanian newspaper and we’ll send some to the agency that licenses psychiatrists there and maybe send some to the hospital.

We’ll let you know what happens.

You may have heard us preach about documents. “Documents – Where’s the ?#@*&%! documents?” should always be the battle cry in building a case against a psychiatrist.

I’m pretty sure Joel will agree with me on that.
