KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A veteran who served in Iraq is the latest person to file a lawsuit accusing a former physician assistant at a Veteran’s Administration hospital in Kansas of sexual abuse.
The Kansas City Star reports that the suit filed Monday in federal court is the seventh this year against Mark E. Wisner. He is accused of performing unnecessary and improper genital examinations at the Leavenworth VA Medical Center.
The hospital has said it stopped Wisner from seeing patients and began an investigation after the allegations surfaced.
Wisner surrendered his medical license last year after at least seven patients accused him of abuse. Criminal charges that include sexual battery are pending in Leavenworth County.
Wisner is seeking to have the civil proceedings stayed until the criminal case is resolved.
