Kaiser Doc Faces Charges of Sexual Assault

Authorities say a doctor who practiced part-time as a physician at Kaiser Permanente hospitals in Anaheim and La Palma is facing charges for allegedly sexually assaulting three female patients under the guise of performing routine medical exams.

According to the Orange County District Attorney's Office, David Hung Do, 38, was arrested late last week at his Garden Grove home. He was released on $100,000 bail and will be arraigned at the North Justice Center in Fullerton on a date to be determined.

Between July 2007 and June 2008, prosecutors allege, Do sexually assaulted three women, ages 28 to 46, at Kaiser hospitals and urgent care facilities, where he was a general practitioner.

Do is accused of touching the victims' breasts and vaginas under their clothing. The touching was unnecessary and unrelated to the medical treatment needed by the women, according to prosecutors.
