Doctor voluntarily surrendered his medical license

Posted: Updated:

Dr. Jaime Sandoval, M.D. is accused of inappropriately touching female patients.

According to a press release issued by the Texas Medical Board, Dr. Sandoval, agreed to surrender his Texas medical license on August 25, 2017.

He surrendered his license in lieu of further disciplinary proceedings.

The press release states "Dr. Sandoval’s license was previously under temporary suspension based on inappropriate conduct with several female patients in which he violated sexual boundaries through inappropriate touching, actions and comments, which were offensive and of a sexual nature."

The Texas Medical Board temporarily suspended his medical license on July 21st after reports that he inappropriately touched five female patients.

Officials with the Corpus Christi Police Department say investigators are looking into a complaint filed against Dr. Sandoval.

He was arrested on Wednesday, July 19th after one of his patients claimed he sexually assaulted her.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by Action 10 News, the accuser told officers that Dr. Sandoval sexually assaulted her on February 1, 2017 at his office at 1301 Santa Fe.

She told investigators during the exam, Dr. Sandoval stood behind her, pulled her breasts out of her blouse and began to fondle them.

She claims she told the doctor she was only there for a rash on her neck.

According to the arrest affidavit, Dr. Sandoval asked her to lay down on a table so that he could check her stomach.

He is accused of placing his hands without medical gloves in and around her "private area."

She also said Dr. Sandoval then removed her hair from a pony tail and told her that she looked sexy.

Dr. Sandoval was arrested last July.

 He was taken to the Nueces County Jail where he was released on $50,000 bond.

Sandoval could face at least one charge of sexual assault.

Dr. Sandoval was re-arrested on August 8th after another alleged victim came forward.

According to an arrest affidavit, the woman told police he inappropriately touched her breasts during several exams.

She also said during one visit Sandoval licked her and then sexually assaulted her.

She gave police her statement on August 1st.
