WARNING – Dr. Hollie Sobel, Ph.D., the Director of Outcomes Research at The Autism Resource Center at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, was recently named in a Professional Regulations complaint filed last week with the State of Illinois. According to the complaint, it is alleged that Dr. Sobel inappropriately elected to refrain from reporting a cigarette burn on the hand of a child to DCFS after the child admitted to receiving the cigarette burn from an unsavory source, as records purportedly indicate. The name of the patient has been omitted to protect the identity of the minor.
The complaint against Sobel comes in the wake of last month’s arrest in Wilmette, Illinois of Dr. Joshua Baron, MD. Until his arrest last month, Dr. Baron was gainfully employed at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. According to TribLocal’s John P. Huston, Dr. Baron was arrested in Wilmette on Jan. 13 for allegedly attempting to trade prescription drugs for sex through a Craigslist ad. Baron allegedly agreed to provide an undercover officer posing as a young female with a fraudulent prescription for Adderall in exchange for sexual acts.
According to the Rush University Medical Center Website, Baron joined the Pediatric Neurology division in July 2006 and focused on epilepsy, ongoing trials in examining sleep symptoms in children with epilepsy, and studies to evaluate novel pharmaceuticals.
