INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana Attorney General's Office has filed a licensing complaint against an Indianapolis doctor accused of sexually abusing patients and writing prescriptions illegally.
Dr. Segun Rasaki was charged earlier this year with battery and sexual battery after female patients complained that he touched them inappropriately during appointments, police said.
At least two of Rasaki's patients at his family medical practice at 3266 N. Meridian St. said they were required to undergo a pelvic exam or pap smear every 30 days without medical necessity.
Another patient, who had injured her ankle, said she was required to undergo a breast exam and was prescribed Vicodin without an examination.
The Indiana Attorney General's Office filed a licensing complaint against Rasaki with the Medical Licensing Board.
"The accusations and evidence against Dr. Rasaki make it clear that he presents a danger and threat to the public's health and safety if he is allowed to resume his practice," said Gabrielle Owens, deputy director of the Licensing Enforcement and Homeowner Protection Unit. "Inappropriate interactions with patients are unacceptable and our office has aggressively pursued this investigation in order to protect Hoosiers."
Rasaki's license has been suspended, preventing him from practicing until disciplinary action is filed.
