The founder of the beleaguered Montreux clinic rejects the findings of the report that closed her clinic down last week.

In an interview on the American television show "20/20", Peggy Claude-Pierre said her staff is qualified and that former patients who died did so after they left her care, and that she never force fed a four-year-old with a spoon.

Claude-Pierre also told ABC News that her clinic suffered because it grew too fast. Last week, Claude-Pierre attended a Montreux news conference in Victoria, but did not take questions from local reporters. She later flew to New York to tape the interview with "20/20", which first profiled her clinic five years ago.
