Medical Sex Abuse

Breaking the Silence

Nashville Psychiatrist Trades Sex For Drugs

Dr. Settimio Castellani’s license was revoked after he admitted to engaging in oral sex with a patient. He apparently stated he would withhold a vital prescription unless the patient performed sex acts upon him. It was determined that this was most likely not an isolated case and that there may  have been several other women with whom Castellani had nonconsensual sex.
