    I wonder if the charges will affect her professional license. It certainly leaves a big question about her ability to care for children.

    It leaves some big questions. From the article:

    Police planned to release the children to their father, but were unable to after finding the living conditions at the home to be “unsuitable,” Carruesco said.


    Instead, the children were taken into protective custody, CNN reported.

    Well this little incident should cost this lady a lot of patients. Just when I think I've heard everything I log on WS and see I'm not even close to hearing everything!

    The mother was identified by KBAK as 34-year-old Christie Chu, a contracted pediatrician who was seeing patients at the location at the time of the incident.

    I would certainly hope so! The only Christine Chu MD listed as a pediatrician on the web is located in IL. Since the doctor in question was contracted, we'll have to wait for an image or more info to see if this is the same physician or not.

    I am How dare she? Especially the 9 month old? Not that leaving any child unattended is excusable! It is NOT!

    WTF is wrong with people?????????

    This just makes my blood boil. A 9 month old and a 2 year old!!!

    I've always said half jokingly that when I am queen of the world I will make not using your turn signal a capital offence. No trial, no jury, just shoot you on the side of the road next to your car.

    But honestly I would easily endorse that exact punishment for these fricking idiot selfish parents who leave their kids in cars. NO EXCUSES!!!! THIS HAS TO STOP!!!!

    What makes this case worse than most, to me, is that this isn't some poor, poverty-stricken single mother whose babysitter cancelled at the last minute and she was desperately afraid that if she didn't go to work at her minimum-wage job, she would be fired. This was a pediatrician, FGS!

    And not only that Sonjay, but someone who is (theoretically) highly educated in the care and health of children. Does she have the "god complex" that some doctors develop?

    I'm beginning to question if her medical degree and license are even legit. I see stories every once in while of someone impersonating a doctor and I wonder if that's what's going on here.

    The mother is listed as Christie Yee.

    The children had been spotted in a minivan Tuesday afternoon in the 4900 block of Centennial Plaza Drive. Police gave the mother's name as Christie Chu, and said she is a pediatrician. However, she is listed as Dr. Christie Yee on the nearby office for GMA Healthcare Providers. The van had been parked behind that office building, in a lot adjoining another medical clinic.

    The father is also a doctor!!!

    The house sounds like hoarders live there.

    This listing has an alert saying "Our records show that this doctor is a student."

    http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Christie_Yee.html

    This one says she's licensed in CA.

    https://www.doximity.com/pub/christie-yee-md/1

    She completed her residency in FL in 2011, so I guess she really is a doctor.

    Maybe she's studying for a specialized certificate?

    "I was actually shocked at what the inside looked like," Bakersfield Police Sgt. Gary Carruesco told Eyewitness News. "It was floor to half-way up the walls, boxes of clothes and trash, dirty dishes in the sink, moldy food in the fridge that wouldn't even close."
    Yep, that's hoarding. And the minivan sounds like it was in a similar state

    Disgusting. If my child had been seen by this "doctor" I'd be calling my attorney about now. Who knows what pathogens have been carried into the clinic from the home and the vehicle.

    Interesting that she is a part-time provider. I think we all assume that as a doctor her income is good and she has certain level of intelligence. Many younger doctors are deeply in debt and struggle to make ends meet, especially in lower income areas. As a part time provider, she gets a much more minimal salary than we would think.

    Intelligence is one of those things that does not cross all areas of behavior. She could be book smart but have no common sense or awareness of what is right and wrong. I have known many medical students who were book brilliant but relationship/life living losers.

    I am in no way saying that she is not responsible for her actions. It is horrifying to me that she would have left these two children in a car rather than bringing them into her employment and seeking help from one of the staff. She may have had issues in the past with getting written up for bringing her kids to work. My guess is that this is not the first time she had no care and these kids sat in the car.

    It sounds to me, with the amount of hoarding and the father living in the car, that there are serious mental health issues with one or both. They may have been able to function adequately as physicians (germs aside) but their home life shows the reality. What a blessing that this was discovered. Those poor little babies! I hope the parents can get the help they clearly need. I wonder if there is a postpartum issue going on.
