Maryland medical board charges local doctor with sexual misconduct

A Maryland pain doctor is accused of molesting three female patients.

KENSINGTON, Md. (WUSA9) -- Some shocking allegations were made against a local anesthesiologist who’s licensed to practice in Maryland, DC and Virginia.

The Maryland State Board of Physicians has charged Dr. Bryan S. Williams with sexual misconduct involving three female patients he treated between 2012 and 2014.

According to medical board charging documents, all three women went to Dr. Williams for pain management and later, accused him of sexual molestation.

Williams was working at medical offices in Kensington and Largo, Md. when a female patient came to see him for lower back pain. During those visits, the doctor allegedly touched the woman inappropriately without explanation.

According to the medical board, the patient “asked the (doctor) with alarm what he was doing.”

Dr. Williams replied not to worry, “it’ll be alright.”

On another visit, the doctor allegedly reached beneath her surgical gown and repeatedly touched her again and according to the documents, “looked up at the patient” while he was doing so. When she demanded to know what he was doing, she noticed the doctor was aroused.

The alleged victim reported the incidents to her primary care doctor, who reported him to Kaiser, the medical care provider.

“I was nervous. I was jumpy. I couldn’t sleep,” she told WUSA9’s Andrea McCarren.

She was later put on medication to ease her anxiety.

Two other female patients reported similar experiences. The documents indicated when Patient 3 told the doctor she “did not like where he was at,” he said nothing and continued to touch her inappropriately.

Currently, Dr. Williams works at the Metro Spine Pain Centers office in Oxon Hill, Md.

He told us by phone that the allegations are “completely false. It’s hurtful…” he said.

Asked why three women would independently accuse him of similar misconduct, he suggested, “maybe a lack of understanding of the exam process.”

But one of the alleged victims said, “He’s lying.”

She said she has to pursue justice in this case because “it could be anybody’s daughter.”

The state medical board will determine Dr. Williams’ fate on May 25th.

When asked why she didn’t report the assault to police, the alleged victim said her primary care doctor reported it to Kaiser, the healthcare provider.

In a statement Kaiser responded to the allegations against Dr. Williams: "The safety of our patients is our highest priority, and we have no tolerance for behavior that puts our patients at risk. We take all allegations of misconduct seriously and took action when concerns were raised."

Another patient in Virginia also told her primary care doctor, who reported it to the state medical board.
