I agree with many of your comments here and I feel betrayed and while I know that Dr. Campo and all the staff are not responsible for dr. Todds actions I no longer feel comfortable bringing my children there.  I have been completely heartsick over this.  I do love dr. Campo and hope this whole mess blows over for her so she and the staff can move on.  They are a wonderful bunch of people there and I always loved how dr. Todd was with my kids, he always showed them respect but innocent until proven guilty dosent apply when an admission of guilt is involved.  I too always sat in on his exams with my kids so I feel confident that nothing inappropriate occurred but on the same token just knowing someone with his proclivities touched my children, however it was meant, just makes me ill.

Still sick about this whole situation, like Nancy mentioned just to think that this sicko touched my children is a bitter pill. I hope he pays dearly for his actions and truly believe this is psychotic behavior of a sociopath that hit way to close to home for all of us that trusted him with our children's health. The only solace I take from this is the hope that my kids are to young and innocent to comprehend the severity of this ordeal. While I see him beat and suffer in prison I want all the money I have paid Westone back and a piece of his Porsche, home, practice and portfolio. To say we were duped is an understatement to say the least...

I think someone should think twice about commenting on this obviously disturbing matter. Remember if your name is on the comment, you are identifying your child as one of his patients. Everyone doesn't need to know that, and your child doesn't need everyone knowing that.

To those who say their children were not affected, Google "key fob cameras". That's what the police took along with the images. He was secretly videotaping something and since he's admitted to being sexually aroused by young boys, I'm betting that what he was taping. There's no way his private life crimes can be separate from his profession in this instance, which is another thing I've read. There is no excuse that can be made to justify or excuse this crime. Our children deserve to not be victimized, even if it's just by the impure intentions in getting their clothes off during an exam. Advocate for your kids!
