Overland Park Chiropractor surrenders license

Sexual abuse investigation

June 28, 2018 - 9:52 am

A suburban Kansas City chiropractor has surrendered his medical license as a state board investigates sexual abuse reports.

The Kansas City Star reports that the Overland Park, Kansas, chiropractor made the decision to surrender his license last week after it was suspended on an emergency basis in May. The suspension came after a female patient reported abuse and got a protection order from a judge because she said she feared he would retaliate.

A subsequent order issued last week said the board had received information from two of the chiropractor's patients "who independently reported similar instances of sexual abuse, misconduct and/or improper sexual contact."

The chiropractor admitted no wrongdoing in surrendering his license but agreed that the board had enough evidence to prove he had violated the medical board's rules.
