ED Magedson – Founder
Dr. Anne C. Utley427 Linden Ave. Memphis, Tennessee United States of America
After days of arguing and discord, I convinced my husband to leave the house for a few days to give me time to pack and get out. The next day several policemen arrived at the house to take me to Lakeside Behavioral Center. They explained that my psychiatrist Dr. Anne Utley had referred me for involuntary commitment because I was psychotic, suicidal and homicidal. I explained that I didnt have a psychiatrist and didnt know Dr. Utley and was not psychotic, suicidal or homicidal. Nonetheless, they forcibly put me into a squad car and took me to Lakeside Behavioral Center.
Upon admission to Lakeside, I was judged to be NOT psychotic or suicidal by three admitting healthcare professionals (documented in my medical record). I explained to the therapist that I did not know Dr.Utley. The therapist phoned Dr. Utley who confirmed that she didnt know me or my husband and that she ordered the involuntary commitment as a favor to her sister who was a friend of my husband. The therapist documented this information in my medical record.
I was allowed to leave Lakeside AMA when administration was informed that my situation would be reported to my senator, my congressman and Medicare Fraud and Abuse.
I have never had a psychiatric diagnosis and it is beyond comprehension that the unethical (and possibly illegal) actions of Dr. Anne C. Utley could land me in a mental institution in order to do a favor for a sister. Official allegations of abuse against Dr. Utley have been registered with the TN Department of Health Board of Licensure of Healthcare Professionals.
