Valerie Augustus

A state medical board suspended a Tennessee psychiatrist's license after she reportedly beat 10 patients with belts and a riding crop. The patients who accused Dr. Valerie Augustus of beating them are Black.

The state launched an investigation after patients complained that their psychiatrist was beating them. One of Dr. Augustus' patients was a woman who suffered from depression and suicidal thoughts. She also had a history of physical abuse.

Dr. Augustus's lawyer quickly rushed to her defense.

"It was a faux punishment not real punishment. She wasn't really whacking these people," said Darrell Baker Jr.

But that's not what the state said when it suspended her license for a minimum of 60 days. She was also ordered to undergo a mental evaluation, take a medical ethics class and pay $10,000 in civil penalties.

    chile, he was 'counseling' several people for a few years. either somebody's husband found out or a young lady's parents found out.... it's an old story now, but i remember being fascinated at the time. i thought for sure it might bring down COGIC at least in that immediate area, but he moved on and opened another church. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9c5524b933f3a29872256af8b9d30b4c9ec5914b980fdc0a0817cbbe688aa153.gif

  • dru and neil

    So she's acting out her sadistic desires on vulnerable people who came to her for help...I hope she never practices again and may even need to be charged for assault!

  • dru and neil

    She's using a riding crop, I'm interested in where she was spanking these people because it sounds sexual in nature, she's fulfilling her little fetish. She needs to be banned. People came to her for help saving their lives not this chit.

  • Patricia

    is anybody shocked that psychiatrists are crazy though? they go study that mess in school to find out whats wrong with themselves. my relatives that majored in it are crazy as hell. the psychology majors in school were weirdos. the ones who were not eventually changed majors. i even have a theory they are the ones who conspired to get degrees and sit on boards to vote against/outlaw u.s. mental institutions so NOBODY can make them take their medications.

  • Renee26

My thing is how he got free reign to do whatever with whomever but Tiny can't do the same...sounds like she's the one missing out in the marriage not him. She could still have that lifestyle and be single so she must like being treated like ish and that's sad to me...for any woman to not know their worth.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Dass all?!?! Suspended her license? Maan I worked in mental health for over ten years. That is str8 up patient abuse. Her as suppose to be in somebody's jail. The patient's health and well being was top priority. It was our only priority. Being verbally or physically aggressive yo as was outta there. Working with the mental ill is a big challenge. I've been placed in a choke hold had all my hair pulled out in the back of my head,spit on,had human waste thrown at my direction. You go through alot as well as see alot including abuse by professionals. I'm just glad I'm out and have all my faculties. Trust me the mind is a terrible thing to loose.

  • Shay Bay

    I agree with most of that but mental institutions were outlawed in part due to the mistreatment of patients and the conditions they were made to live in. There are still adult foster care homes for those that need assistance with daily activities, help taking medication, etc.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Lmboooooo...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Suspended her license?
