An Australian female who changed her mind about transitioning to a man has filed a lawsuit against their psychiatrist for approving their gender reassignment after one meeting.
At 19 years old, Jay Langadinos began meeting with Dr. Patrick Toohey, a longtime psychiatrist in Sydney, Australia. Her endocrinologist referred her to Dr. Patrick to see if she would be able to receive a gender transition. According to a statement of a claim filed in the New South Wales Supreme Court, the physician explained from their perspective that Langadinos was young and needed “a throughout psychiatric work-up before embarking on hormone treatment.”
After the two met up, Dr. Patrick declared Langadinos was going through gender dysphoria and that Langadinos could begin testosterone therapy. Between 2010 and 2021, Langadinos underwent testosterone therapy, top surgery, and had her uterus removed.
Now, Langadinos – who longer identifies as male – is claiming Dr. Patrick was professionally negligent in his recommendations for her in a lawsuit against him. She says Dr. Patrick should have recommended that she get a second opinion before her hysterectomy and that her social phobia should have been considered in his recommendations to her after she expressed the condition to him.
