[ATG] Doctor’s sexual contact with patients spurs board to pull license

Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – A local physician, who was criminally convicted of sexually abusing patients, was told today by the Medical Licensing Board his license to practice is revoked.

The board’s vote stems from a complaint filed earlier this month by Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s office. Gabrielle Owens, Deputy Director of the Attorney General’s Licensing Enforcement and Homeowner Protection Unit, said investigations revealed that Rasaki inappropriately touched patients during appointments and was writing prescriptions illegally.

“Today’s disciplinary action against Dr. Rasaki is in the best interest of the public and may give some peace of mind to any former patients who were so wrongfully taken advantage of,” Owens said. “Our office will continue to investigate complaints against licensed medical professionals to ensure patients are protected.”

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.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department first investigated complaints by female patients regarding Rasaki. The department then forwarded the information plus additional complaints to the Attorney General’s Office for further review. In March, the state successfully petitioned the Medical Licensing Board to suspend the doctor’s license while investigations continued.

The Marion County prosecutor’s office filed sexual battery and battery charges against the physician. This week, a Marion County judge found Rasaki guilty on all counts and he is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 13.
