I can't imagine how hard it is to prosecute a guy like this. I mean its not like he's a dentist and asks women to take off their panties for a root canal. The guy is a gyno doc and most of the time women have to let him inspect their special area. If he was masturbating during the inspection or massaging their breast while his fingers were in the vagina I'd see where we have a problem.

Maybe the women can chime in and educate us men on how a doctor could commit sexual battery when its his job to be in those places.

Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not defending him. I'm just ignorant to the process.

If she decides to complain because she needs a new car or can't make her mortgate payment, then its battery. Otherwise, it's just a physical examination.

He will be found innocent and these females will have to find another way to "get rich quick."
Sadly, it will be at the cost of his career.

you don't know what he did. I was one of his patients until recently. The way he touched me and told me I had a nice body and if my sister were as pretty as me made me feel so unconfortable. I never went back.

So the question is, why didn't you do anything about the situation? Or if you did what was the outcome? If this is the way he talked to you and touched you then you should come forward. Who cares if it was along time ago!!! This is why he still practiced because no one probably ever came forward....This needs to stop and he needs to face criminal charges. I hope he has his day in jail where someone will touch him....like he touched many...

You know it's ignorant statements like this one, from people who don't have any actual information about the case that cause the most damage, both professionally and personally! If you have something intelligent or insightful to say, then please by all means air your views...otherwise if all you have to contribute is hateful ugly comments about a person you've never met then please keep them to yourself! I for one have met Dr. Vouis and know that he IS a good man. He WILL get his day in court. And he WILL prove his innocence.

No one is being hateful or ignorant...by all means if he did do bad things to these women or girls then he has to pay...You must be a family member or friend trying to defend him, that is fine...but keep in mind the truth will reveal itself....No one knows for sure what he did...Only the ones who felt uncomfortable by his voice and hands... keep in mind no one is being ugly, hateful, or ignorant....just commenting on a persons encounter with this doctor....once again if he did cause harm in any way, shape, or form he deserves to pay with time in jail...so he can get a taste of his own medicine....

America has lost the concept of innocent until PROVEN guilty.
Anyone can file for anything in this country. Doesn't mean you'll win but you can fill out the paperwork and get a case against someone started that easy. Next you drag them through the media so you look like you have a case. Then you retain a tricky lawyer who makes up a case and if you can put it over on 12 products of a failed public education system: ching ching that's money in the bank.

Thank you. I changed doctors because I didn't want to go back to him. He delivered my baby 14 years ago and then he was very proffesional and respectful. But the last time his uncalled comments and the way he touched me changed my opion on him. I don't need help with my car payments of my mortgage, I earn good money and so does my husband. But if he had no respect with his patient and proffesionalism and honor the oath he took when he became OB/GYN then he must be stop and punish.

What you're talking about is not against the law. Sounds like he was trying to put you at ease but you're too up tight, I think it's in your head.
