Doctor Accused Of Planting Hidden Camera Inside Bathroom
NORTH HILLS, N.Y. (WPIX) - A North Hills cardiologist is adamantly denying charges that he spied on female employees with a hidden camera inside his Manhasset office bathroom.

Vincent Pacienza, 54, pleaded not guilty in court Wednesday to one count of second-degree unlawful surveillance, the charge reportedly handed down by a Nassau County grand jury on Oct. 29.

Pacienza was arrested by Nassau County police last June. He was released Wednesday on $2,500 bail.

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice said Pacienza installed a video camera hidden inside an air purifier inside one of the bathrooms at Manhasset Cardiovascular and Wellness Center. Authorities said Pacienza shut down the employees-only bathroom after the camera was installed, which forced everyone that worked there to use the bathroom equipped with the camera.

This is more common than people think. You can get camera detectors for this kind of stuff, but if you can't feel safe at the doctors office where can you?
