Drugs, sex, an overdose, prostitutes … former USC dean’s DUAL LIFE finally exposed!

By

Dr. Carmen A. Puliafito,  former dean of the Keck School of Medicine at USC, is undergoing some surgery himself!

The LA Times just broke a crushing report exposing the dual sides of this Harvard-educated physician.  LA Times reports:

Puliafito, 66, and these much younger acquaintances captured their exploits in photos and videos. The Times reviewed dozens of the images.

Shot in 2015 and 2016, they show Puliafito and the others partying in hotel rooms, cars, apartments and the dean’s office at USC. In one video, a tuxedo-clad Puliafito displays an orange pill on his tongue and says into the camera, “Thought I’d take an ecstasy before the ball.” Then he swallows the pill.

In another, Puliafito uses a butane torch to heat a large glass pipe outfitted for methamphetamine use. He inhales and then unleashes a thick plume of white smoke. Seated next to him on a sofa, a young woman smokes heroin from a piece of heated foil.

As dean, Puliafito oversaw hundreds of medical students, thousands of professors and clinicians, and research grants totaling more than $200 million. He was a key fundraiser for USC, bringing in more than $1 billion in donations, by his estimation. 

Puliafito resigned in March 2016, in the middle of the spring term just after the overdosing of a young lady in his hotel room, saying he wanted to explore outside opportunities. Three weeks earlier, the 21-year-old woman had overdosed in his presence in a Pasadena hotel room. The woman was rushed to a hospital, where she recovered. Police found methamphetamine in the hotel room, according to a police report, but made no arrests.

Amazing a man that can do so much good in the world can do so much harm.

In addition to his role at USC, Puliafito helped invent a laser technology to help diagnose and treat eye disease. He also worked as director of the University of Miami’s Bascom Palmer Eye Insitute from 2001 to 2007.

Amazing.  He is still seeing patients, guest lecturing, and representing USC speaking at a forum last week.
