[ATG] Indianapolis physician’s license suspended for inappropriate sexual contact with patients
Start Date: 3/22/2012
End Date: 3/22/2012
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – The Medical Licensing Board suspended Dr. Segun Rasaki’s medical license today after sexual battery and battery charges were filed against him.

Once the Marion County prosecutor’s office filed the charges, the Attorney General’s Office submitted a Petition for Summary Suspension with the Medical Licensing Board. The suspension prevents the physician from practicing for 90 days while a formal complaint is being drafted.

“After reviewing the former patients’ complaints, I believe it is clear Dr. Rasaki presents an immediate danger to the public’s health and safety,” said Gabrielle Owens, Deputy Director of the Attorney General’s Licensing Enforcement and Homeowner Protection Unit. “To protect future patients, our office is drafting a formal complaint to present before the board which will ultimately determine the appropriate disciplinary action.” 

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police investigated complaints by female patients regarding “inappropriate sexual touching” by Rasaki during appointments. The department then forwarded the information plus additional complaints to the Attorney General’s Office for further review and investigation.

At least two patients claimed they were required to undergo a pelvic exam or pap smear every 30 days without medical necessity. Another patient said she went in to receive treatment for her ankle injury and without examination was prescribed Vicodin and required to undergo a breast exam.

Once a formal administrative complaint is filed, the Medical Licensing Board will determine the appropriate discipline based upon all the facts of the case presented by the Attorney General’s Office.
