FORMER AMHERST STUDENT 11/29/2019 11:54:33 PM This is hard for me to talk about, but I think it's important that I say something.
I knew Owen Muir when we were both students at Amherst College. He raped me. I was around 17 at the time and drunk, and he was an upperclassman and a new friend; I'd told him about how I had been sexually abused as a child, and I thought he was so caring and understanding. We were talking and lying on my bed in my dorm when he started removing my clothes. It was so sudden that, at first, I actually thought he was undressing me so I could go to sleep; by the time I figured out what he was doing, I was frozen and couldn't move. I trusted him and he attacked me.
It had a deeply devastating effect on my life and on my college career. Since then, I have been told about other victims of his as well. I have often considered reporting what he did to me, but I can't prove what happened (campus rape is rarely prosecuted), and Owen is so litigious and vindictive that I'm terrified of going up against him. I don't want him to come after me.
I was very concerned even in college that he studied psychology and intended to become a doctor. I have worried for years that young women and girls are not safe with him. When I read about what happened to Mona, I was disturbed and appalled, and my fears were confirmed. I hope you are able to hold him accountable at long last. He is dangerous and I want him to stop hurting vulnerable people.
From Alan (Mona Daniella's father): A whistleblower from NYU who wrote to us is further proof that Dr. Owen Muir did not have the capacity to treat Mona Daniella.
Only a whistleblower can provide such precise information. The message was written by either a doctor or an attorney: it is very well written, by an educated person, who is very familiar with the specifics of psychiatric Emergency Room procedures, in addition to being quite familiar with Muir's graduation history.
Should the whistleblower's bombshell allegations prove to be true, it would clearly show NYU Langone Medical Center should have never allowed Dr. Owen Muir to graduate, then to be involved with, to consult, or to give any advice whatsoever to the Emergency Room psychiatric staff precisely because he had never gotten "the proper training and supervised experience working with patients suffering from psychiatric emergencies, which include suicidal behavior". This would mean that NYU Langone Medical Center allegedly knowingly and willingly allowed Dr. Owen Muir to encourage the Emergency Room to discharge Mona, or at worse the Psychiatric Emergency Room staff discharged Mona without having been told by NYU Langone Medical Center that Dr. Owen Muir is not allegedly qualified to take care of patients in crisis. Either way the whistleblower's allegation is damning: allegedly NYU Langone Medical Center knowingly and willingly aided and abetted Dr. Owen Muir first by allowing him to graduate without the required training, second by allowing him to work around with patients suffering from psychiatric emergencies, which include suicidal behavior - despite knowing he lacked the qualifications, and the experience; and allegedly NYU Langone Medical Center knowingly and willingly chose to not take any precautions whatsoever to safeguard the lives of their patients by in all probability choosing earnings ahead of lives. The whistleblower's allegation makes it more difficult to understand why NYU Langone Medical Center would give hospital privileges to Dr. Owen Muir especially since he had allegedly threatened to sue them. Getting hospital privileges is difficult in New York City.
This is exactly what Dr. Owen Muir did to our daughter Mona Daniella - in regards to her treatment, (without our knowledge of the whistleblower's allegations), We have thousands of SMS text exchanges between Dr. Owen Muir and Mona Daniella and Dr. Carlene MacMillan and Mona Daniella to support this. He called the police on her (then lied about it) - actually worse, he asked Dr. Carlene MacMillan to call the police on Mona Daniella and had her taken to Bellevue hospital on trumped up charges despite knowing Bellevue was her biggest fear. In addition Dr. Owen Muir threatened Mona Daniella multiple times. Dr. Carlene MacMillan was aware because Mona Daniella texted her numerous times about the threats, yet did nothing about it. Talk about conflict of interest (this is one amongst many)..
This allegation doesn't simply reflect poorly on Dr. Owen Muir's character. The allegation would mean Dr. Owen Muir is fraudulent - akin to crooks who operate Ponzi schemes; they profess to do something that in reality they neither have the capability, nor are ever able to deliver the expected or promised results.
The whistleblower's allegations only help us believe further more how NYU Langone Medical Center was negligent and in all probability money meant all to them for them to neglect our late daughter Mona Daniella.
Dr. Owen Muir did not have the capacity to treat Mona Daniella - we now see this not just from the SMS text exchanges which is horrific. As a consequence he would never be able to deliver the expected results. And in fact he did not.
Dr. Owen Muir and Dr. Carlene Macmillan had an ethical obligation to advise us Dr, Owen Muir was not even a trainee before he started treating Mona Daniella. Instead they led us to believe he was an excellent psychiatrist (yes excellent at shouting, excellent at threatening, excellent at lying to the police by saying our daughter. had assaulted him while the SMS texts show this was clearly not the case). Had we known how Dr. Owen Muir and Dr. Carlene MacMillan were incompetent, unprofessional, unethical, negligent, liars and much more we would have never, never, never allowed Mona Daniella to be treated by them. Especially to start with Dr. Carlene MacMillan who knew first hand all the horrors Mona Daniella had gone through while misdiagnosed this treated with the wrong treatment - at the hands of doctors (Dr. Carlene MacMillan told us they were "green" not experienced doctors) in McLean Hospital, Belmont, Massachusetts where she had worked before (and did not hire her husband Dr. Owen Muir by their own admission).
This is definitely Pure Malpractice and Pure Negligence by all defendants in the lawsuit - the malpractice and negligence were not simple negligence; they were knowingly and willingly.
Bombshell new allegations against Muir! Thank you Whistleblower.
These allegations needs to be investigated! If they are proven to be true - Dr. Owen Muir needs to be held accountable for much more than we initially thought - also regardless if true or not shame on his wife Dr. Carlene MacMillan who knowingly and willingly aided and abetted her sick and disturbed husband Dr. Owen Muir Muir to threaten our late daughter Mona Daniella. He called the police on her on made up charges. Dr. Carlene MacMillan knows her husband is sick - there are multiple SMS exchanges that show the above. Dr. Carlene MacMillan needs to be hold accountable as well.
Thank you again Whistleblower. We hope and welcome any further information.
Whistleblower - We also have a gift for you: In an email, while she was still working for NYU Langone Medical Center, Dr. Carlene MacMillan, instructed Alan (Mona Daniella's father) and me to pay for her services through her husband / Dr. Owen Muir’s business Brooklyn Minds . We did not know that this is allegedly fraud. Apparently when doctors work for a hospital the hospital takes a share of the fees they charge patients. And doctors are not allowed to charge patients from other entities.
We have her email, the one with the above instructions that she sent to us. We believe NYU Langone Medical Center should investigate this.
The allegations by a WHISTLEBLOWER submitted earlier today: 11/28/2019 01:23:48 PM
"Please note that while Dr. Muir was treating patients in his private practice from 2015 and 2017, he was still a trainee at the NYU child and adolescent psychiatry program. In 2016 and 2017 he argued that he was disabled due to his psychiatric and physical conditions and that he should not be expected to treat psychiatric patients in the emergency room.
Dr. Muir threatened NYU with a lawsuit for discrimination against people with disabilities if he were to be asked to complete his psychiatric emergency room rotation. Hence, he managed to graduate from the program without having proper training and supervised experience working with patients suffering from psychiatric emergencies, which include suicidal behavior.
On the one hand, he argued that he could not work with patients in crisis in a supervised setting and on the other he was seeing patients in crisis in his private practice.
Either Dr. Muir lied to NYU in order to work less or he was seeing patients in private practice when he knew he was not emotionally and physically able to do so. In any case, it reflects poorly in Dr. Muir’s character.”
Mona Daniella's Bat Mitzvah in February of 2002 It was a costume party, in Purim, It was like a carnival, it had some amusement park games, and carnival games where the winner received a prize. Mona Daniella was the princess. In the picture starting from left, Maria Elvira (former neighbor from Spain), Mona Daniella, Mac Haddad (her brother, like a Gaucho), and her great aunt from Brasil. 2nd row - behind Mona Daniella - me, my cousin Solita from Brasil, and Alan. Some of her friends talk about her party to this day. She was radiant, and so happy.
Mona Daniella was a sensitive, gentle, kind, and caring person. She epitomized "Chessed", Loving-Kindness. She fought extremely hard. In a 2014 email I wrote to her that she was the bravest, the brightest, the most determined and the most resilient. Indeed she was. And much more.
