Attorneys for the numerous victims who were reportedly sexually abused at the hands of Big Apple pediatrician Dr Reginald Archibald spoke out Thursday — claiming that a report released last month by the hospital where he worked only scrapes the surface of his predatory behavior  Archibald, who died in 2007, practiced at Manhattan’s Rockefeller University Hospital as an endocrinologist specializing in child growth from 1948 to 1982  After being inundated with complaints from former patients — many now elderly or deceased — the hospital commissioned the law firm of Debevoise & Plimpton to probe the mountain of disturbing allegations last year  The report, released on May 23, confirmed the doctor’s alleged actions.

 But at a Thursday press conference — held at the Omni Berkshire Place Hotel in Midtown and attended by 20 victims — their lawyers, Mariann Wang and Paul Mones, claimed that the report left a lot unsaid  The report stated that in response to its fall 2018 outreach to “over 1,000 individuals” — all of Archibald’s patients that they were able to locate — more than 900 victims responded  “But what it did not say is that its outreach was based in part on index cards of all the patients from Archibald’s pediatric endocrinology clinic that he kept himself and that his family turned over to Rockefeller’s lawyers,” Wang said during a press conference “Rockefeller did not report what its lawyers told one of our clients, that there were 9,000 such index cards ”  “The reality — one that Rockefeller seems unwilling to admit — is that Archibald sexually abused well in excess of 1,000 children during his many decades practicing at Rockefeller,” Wang added  She went on to note that Archibald saw patients at the hospital for nearly 40 years “during which it is almost certain that thousands of children crossed the threshold into his examination room ”  She also detailed the alleged abuse that took place at the Madison Square Boys Club, where he served as the “pool doctor ”  Additionally, the hospital hasn’t been able to locate records for “a number” of clients allegedly abused by the doctor “but acknowledges that the available medical records do not cover the entire period of time in which Archibald treated patients” there, Wang said  “More such patients are sure to exist,” she added.

 Many affected patients have likely either died, moved or are emotionally unable to discuss the abuse, she continued  Mones also claimed that the Rockefeller report only summarized the alleged abuse “in a dry, clinical way” and called it “cynical sugarcoating ”  “The report hides behind a lack of detail to conceal the painful reality of Dr Archibald’s victims’ experiences in part by suggesting that Archibald was actually a legitimate doctor who sometimes engaged in inappropriate acts,” he said  Instead, Archibald was a “vile predator” only interested in satisfying “his own sick, sadistic desires,” Mones alleged see also This 'pool doctor' pedophile may be NYC's most prolific child molester A late Manhattan pediatrician molested countless young patients over the  Six victims spoke during the presser, holding photos of themselves when they were children Others stood behind them holding hand-drawn signs that said “7 DECADES OF SILENCE” and “THEY KNEW ”  “I spent years thinking I was the only person, wondering,” one of the victims, a 64-year-old woman who only gave her first name, Donna, told The Post “I [asked], ‘Why do we have to do all these things?’ and [Archibald] said ‘scientific reasons’…so I sort of believed him, but over time, over the next 40 years, I would wonder, ‘Well, is this sexual abuse?’ But if it was, why haven’t people complained about it? Was I the only one?”  “I certainly hope that victims everywhere won’t wait the 47 years that I did to come forward and tell their stories,” another victim, Jonathan Chenkin, 57, added “I certainly hope that Rockefeller will be held accountable for what they knew and ignored, and whatever institution out there that hasn’t amended their policies to protect the health and welfare of minors and all people ”  The Debevoise & Plimpton firm did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Post Rockefeller University Hospital declined to comment.
