The Tennessee State Board of Medical Examiners in TN, unanimously voted to reinstate the medical license of a doctor who was recently acquitted of rape charges. The State Board had previously suspended the doctor’s license after the rape charges were filed against him.
Four male patients, all in their twenties, had accused the doctor of performing unnecessary medical procedures during exams in 2008. A New York Criminal Attorney also confirmed that each of these male patients were all exhibiting symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and the doctor had performed these procedures on their rectums and genitals.
Throughout the doctor’s rape trial, members of his staff had testified on his behalf stating that the alleged rapes did not occur, nor was there anything improper being done as there was always a staff member in the room with the doctor and his patient during these procedures.
