PARKLAND, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The pediatrician accused of child solicitation and child pornography possession wants permission to conduct telemedicine appointments — with children.

Dr. Michael Mizrachy, arrested last month, is seeking a modification to his pretrial release which currently includes a ban on all internet access, smart phone use and more. In a filing with the Broward County Clerk of Courts, Mizrachy’s attorneys write:

“The condition, as presently written has essentially crippled Mizrachy in all aspects of his life. For instance, presently, Mizrachy’s only income is through telemedicine. Telemedicine is a type of “virtual” medical appointment that absolutely requires the use of a computer and the internet to accomplish. As a pediatrician, Mizrachy’s patients are usually minors; however, most are babies/infants with ear infections, fever or spitting. They are always with their parent(s) and further most times are just a consult which involves him speaking with the parent(s) alone with no child present. In addition, due to financial constraints, Mizrachy is actively searching for additional work. Almost all employers advertise as well as request applications or resume to be submitted online.”

The filing also states:

“Furthermore, particularly given the state of society in a global pandemic, Mzarchy needs to have access to his banking and credit car, which is all done online. The reality of our current COVID-19 affected society is that daily life is conducted via internet on a computer.”

Mizrachy, according to his attorneys, is prepared to submit a weekly “browser log” to the Court for review.

Separately, Mizrachy is also seeking permission to have contact with this biological daughter, a minor, without “supervision.”

A hearing is set for Wednesday.
