On or about February 20, 2019 Dr. T.Y. Steven Ip, M.D. Plastic Surgery discovered that it’s medical records system had been accessed by an unauthorized individual, possibly a hacker using malware or a computer virus. This resulted in the unauthorized hacker or third party being able to access, view, and download what Dorros Law believes to be massive amounts of highly confidential patient medical records and other protected health information (“PHI”).
