Rockefeller University Hospital on the Upper East Side in New York has acknowledged that Reginald Archibald, an endocrinologist and child growth specialist, most likely sexually abused more than 1,000 child victims over perhaps 40 years, confirmed attorneys representing the abused.
It may be the largest case of sexual abuse by one person in the United States, CBS News reported Tuesday in interviews with some of the survivors, former patients of Archibald, a “highly regarded” growth specialist who claimed to treat children who matured at a slower rate than their peers.
Furthermore, former victims — now adults — are looking for instant camera photos Archibald took of them in the examining room that did not emerge as part of official medical records.
Reportedly, Archibald recruited others for similar “studies” when he was the self-described doctor at the Madison Square Boys’ Club.
Lawyers representing the victims have also asked the New York Attorney General to investigate.
