Evelyn Yang had been seven months pregnant with her first child when, she says, Hadden assaulted her in July 2012. Yang did not see Columbia’s “Dear Valued Patient” form letter – informing patients that Hadden was no longer practicing, months after he stopped working, with no explanation – until she was going through a stack of unopened mail months later.
“As soon as I read that, I got goose bumps all over my body,” Evelyn Yang says. “I could feel all the little hairs stand up. The room started to spin. I remember thinking very clearly, Oh my gosh, could it be that he did this to someone else?”
Read more from Yang and several other former patients who were assaulted by Robert Hadden during his time at Columbia University at the link in bio.
