When we go to the doctor, we trust that we will be treated well and healed, not abused and harmed. That’s why when a doctor sexually assaults someone, it can be so shocking and shameful. If you’re a victim of sexual abuse from a doctor or other healthcare provider, you don’t have to feel ashamed. You deserve justice, and that offender should be held accountable for the losses and injuries, including humiliation and loss of dignity, that you suffered.

Doctor sexual assault is inappropriate touching, sexual comments, or penetration unrelated to any medical procedure being performed or requested. Some types of doctor appointments, by nature, are intimate, but licensed physicians and other medical providers have strict codes of ethics to refrain from making unpleasant and unwanted sexual advances toward a patient.
Even comments about the shape of your body, jokes about your dating life, or the like could be considered sexual assault. In some heinous situations, a doctor or healthcare provider may penetrate a patient either while they are unable to consent or through deception. If you’re unsure whether what you experienced was sexual assault, ask one of our San Francisco doctor sexual assault lawyers.
