Dear fellow Yidden (from Lakewood, Brooklyn, Monsey, Williamsburg, Monroe and beyond) who have been affected by the following recent upheaval:
Many women experience a high risk pregnancy and therefore need to secure a caring doctor who is both experienced and confident to manage their pregnancy, pre-natal and post-partum. A high risk pregnancy is compounded by the fact that subsequent pregnancies can be even more riskier than the earlier ones.
Dr. Baxi, a well known OBGYN affiliated with Columbis Presbytarian Hospital, has been servicing the needs of our communities for decades. She has done so with utmost care, dedication, sensitivity, and most of all - EXPERTISE.
A week ago, the higher-ups at Columbia dropped a bombshell on Dr. Baxi’s practice by stripping her of all GYN patients which limits her entire practice to the annual OB appointments and the like. No more deliveries, no more bedside TLC, no more confidence and high risk experience, no more of the name we have all come to trust.
It’s hard to speculate if this move is politically motivated or a power struggle of some sort, but ultimately, her patients are absorbing the brunt of this sudden demotion. How can we be silent when the hospital carried out such a miscarriage of justice? Let us join hands and protest this immoral judgement that severely impacted both the esteemed doctor and her entire patient base (especially the women who are due to deliver this week).
Please keep in mind how much this affects so many families in our communities. It is worthwhile to indicate in your letters and messages how you will be loyal to Dr. Baxi and follow her wherever she continues to practice her lifesaving techniques.
Please call or write you letter of solidarity and protest for Dr. Baxi ASAP to the following people:
Steven Corwin, M.D.
CEO NY Presbyterian Hospital
Dr. Richard Leibowitz
Chief Medical Officer
Mary D’alton, M.D.
Chair Obstetrics and Gynecology
