Testimony under oath, in open court, has to be true. So does a written report that is considered as evidence in any legal proceeding. If testimony or documents are untrue, that can be perjury, which can be prosecuted. At the very least, perjury discredits the perjurer.
Psychiatrists lie all the time, most fundamentally to themselves, about what they do. They tell everyone they help people with medical problems. But the only medical problems they deal with are the ones they invent or create. Occasionally psychiatrists do help people with problems in thinking, feeling or behaving, but these do not become medical problems unless or until drugs are prescribed, at which point the problems usually get worse, which means there is no help, but rather the opposite of help (harm).
This makes psychiatrists cowardly: they are being paid for something they know in their hearts they cannot do or deliver, and they are afraid that people might find out and stop paying them. So they have to lie more and more every day, they have to steal, and hide.
Syed Hussain recently testified in court that one of his patients is "not willing to take a paternity test..." (That's a quote from a transcript, by the way: page 15, line 6.) But that patient repeatedly asked to take the paternity test in question, as his social worker and his psychologist both confirmed in the presence of Hussain himself, who never bothered to contradict them. So the psychiatrist lied. He perjured himself.
Qura Khan recently wrote in a progress note, admissible as evidence, that one of her patients "...has factual knowledge of fitness material but does not have rational understanding due to psychiatric illness and refusing to take psychotropic medication." The only possible significance of that opinion is, the patient remains unfit to stand trial and can't get out. Yet, on the same day Khan wrote another note about the patient's "...fabricated statements (he reported that he was told by this writer that he will not get out of here until he takes meds)...". This second note was hand written by the lying psychiatrist! Again, perjury.
These people tend to complain that I am confrontational and hostile toward them, or that I threaten them, or that I presume to question their psychiatric "diagnoses" despite the holy and omnipotent authority of the Almighty DSM5.
They are correct on all accounts, but to no avail. I do confront them, I do call them liars, and I will sue them when they commit torts against people whom I represent, or if they violate the law.
I certainly insist that their so-called "diagnoses" and their Almighty DSM5 are utter nonsense.
But I can honestly help them. And I don't have to pretend I'm a doctor.
