Doctor Accused of Sexual Misconduct Gives Up License

07/23/2009 | Medical Malpractice

A Louisville doctor practicing in the south-end has given up his license after several patients accuse him of fondling, inappropriate sexual comments and, in one case, sex in an exam room.

And, if you need evidence there's a white coat code of silence, you need only know that the hospitals and clinics he worked at knew of the allegations since 2001-- but did not report it to the medical licensure board until 2008.  They might have some problems if some of these patients decide to sue.
