That university was complicit in 'ruining it's reputation'. Plenty of blame to go around there, and some left on the table.

That, unfortunately, is a misconception. It is not rare and happens more frequently then we would all like to believe.

Amen.

Back then, doctors were trusted authority figures, and children had no credibility. It was a world created by and for adults. Children were suspect as potential liars, spinners of stories, "getting carried away with their imaginations". A lot has changed since the days of putting complete trust in authority figures.

I'm not sure there was no recourse, but it simply never occurred to parents to file a complaint with the medical licensing board. It was unthinkable, especially to take a child's word over that of a respected doctor, a pillar of the community, and to allow a mere child to upend a medical professional's career. What would be next, allowing children to run the world? There was a very deeply-ingrained mindset at work.

Authorities had a chance to stop Barto in 2000, when he appeared before the Pennsylvania Board of Medicine on administrative charges that he molested two young girls in the 1990s. But regulators threw out the case and allowed him to keep practicing medicine, saying the allegations were "incongruous to his reputation."
Oh, come on! It was 2000, not 1950! Who argues a multiple abuse case, citing the perpetrator's reputation? Well, I guess the case didn't make it to court, so it was an internal Board decision...? Still, that's not much of a state medical board, if you ask me. Sounds like the classic Old-Boys' Network.

I'm confused.

Aren't all MDs absolute gods who should never be questioned or doubted at any time about anything because they are such educated and trustworthy 'experts"?

Of course not.

And if one or two or 10 of them do something terrible, all 100000 should be painted with the same brush.
