Are some doctors literally possessed by demons? Pediatrician yells “SATAN!” when visiting patients
A Dallas-area doctor was recently suspended by the Texas Medical Board following a spate of bizarre and even dangerous behavior at his practice that some might describe as being demonically inspired.
According to a local CBS News affiliate in North Texas, Dr. Kurt Pflieger first started showing signs that something was wrong back in January when co-workers say he tried to roughhouse with a two-year-old patient, whom he reportedly attempted to throw over his shoulder and missed, sending the child plunging to the floor head first.
At one point, Dr. Pflieger started bringing a dog with him to the office, witnesses say, where he would roll around with it on the floor in the hallway, right in the way of patients and their families. This was bookended by his showing up to work late on the regular, sometimes wearing the same shirt and sweatpants three days in a row.
Perhaps most disturbing were Dr. Pflieger’s verbal outbursts while seeing his patients. According to reports, Dr. Pflieger would traipse into patient waiting rooms while in the middle of praying out loud, only to suddenly scream “SATAN!” much to the shock of those in his presence.
