Wow.  That is awful that you have had your trust broken.  Just goes to show that “monsters” often look just like the rest of us.

Yikes!

I can relate to a certain degree. My previous primary doctor was arrested for underage molestation in his doctors office with girls between the age of 13-17. I had been going to him from the age of 12-18. Luckily nothing ever happened to me, but holy cow, that was a really weird feeling when I got the news!

How awful. I’m so sorry this happed. 

My very favorite doctor in the world was recently charged for writing RX for narcotics for himself and skimming medications. He suffersfrom a very serious addiction. He is a fantastic doctor though but its still upsetting to think about.

I was SA by a doctor when I was 19. She was never charged. Nothing makes me more angry than people who abuse a trusted position like that. I really hope the victims can start to recover now.

I heard about this on the news earlier this week! (I’m assuming it’s the same guy since it’d be crazy if there were 2 in one week). Totally shocking.

@MrsSnowPoke:  Oh goodness, how icky. I know it’s probably not necessary, but if it were me, I’d probably change offices too – just because. If it makes you feel any better, I found out today that the guy who ran my internship right out of college has basically been fired for a sexual harrassment scandal. I never specifically had a problem with him – but I’m not at all surprised. He was a bit of a weird dude and there were definitely off handed remarks here and there by the real staff members. I don’t need it, but definitely time to take THAT place off my resume once and for all (at least when I’m not legally obligated to provide it.) 

In a similar note, I have a trainwreck friend who has an older, married boyfriend. He’s a successful pediatrician in the area and apparently has had multiple DUIs. To the extent that he has a breathilizer apparently. So I can’t help but wonder whether he works while intoxicated too. <shudder>

Wow that is shocking alright! I can’t imagine how you must be feeling! There really are so many creeps out there. I heard of another story of a pediatrician sexually abusing little kids in his office. Honestly I’m glad my mom would only let me have female doctors especially during my teenage years and she would always insist on staying with me (because of course, anything can still happen nowadays) and now I’ve insisted that I only want female OB.
