A San Antonio doctor was sanctioned by the Texas Medical Board after she allegedly retaliated against an unhappy client by posting video of the patient in her in underwear to Facebook and YouTube.

The board said Dr. Tinuade Olusegun-Gbadehan, at the Dr. O Medical & Wellness Center, violated the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, the federal law that prohibits medical providers from disclosing confidential patient information.

According to a September complaint filed by the board, Olusegun-Gbadehan acted in an abusive manner by disseminating the video of Medina County resident Clara Aragon-Delk without her consent. Aragon-Delk had made a video testimonial for the medical practice before she had a falling out with the doctor over a billing dispute.

Olusegun-Gbadehan entered into a mediated agreed order with the Texas Medical Board earlier this month. Among other things, she has to take an exam on the the laws and rules relating to the practice of medicine.

Tony Cobos, an Austin lawyer representing Olusegun-Gbadehan, disputed the allegations.

“We deny that any violation occurred,” Cobos wrote in an email. “The matter was originally a billing dispute. However, to avoid a time consuming and expensive hearing process, the matter was settled by agreement. The Agreed Order itself indicates that the matter was in dispute by Dr. Olusegun and that remains our position.”

The order states the doctor “neither admits nor denies” the board’s findings and that she entered into the order to “avoid further investigation” and the “expense and inconvenience of litigation.”
