Doctored A True Story, by Sky Curtis

Doctored was written to help the many women who have been sexually abused by their doctors.

Doctored is a moving true story about the devastating impact of a doctor’s abuse of power. It is a first-person account of one woman’s steely determination to recover and to find justice. Many women go to their doctor for help with anxiety. A surprising number of these vulnerable women are sexually abused during the course of therapy. The consequences of this abuse are profound: they often lose their careers, friends, family, religion, and sanity. It takes a force of will to recover and then report the doctor in an arena where women rarely win.

At times hilarious, most often enraging, DOCTORED is a bold and important book that breaks through the protective barriers surrounding the medical profession.
“The pain we experience as abused women is painted in this book in poetry though multi-sensual layers, giving voice to something that has been silenced for far too long.”
—Rev. Rose Ann Vita, Toronto, Canada
