State suspends license of Pa. OB/GYN after fondling



Published: Thu, August 7, 2014 @ 2:36 p.m.

BRADFORD, Pa. (AP) — The state has suspended the medical license of a northwestern Pennsylvania gynecologist who is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to fondling a patient and a woman who worked for him.

The Bradford Era reports that 51-year-old Dr. Abaz Sosic, of Bradford, faces nearly two years’ probation when he’s sentenced Sept. 18, subject to an earlier plea agreement.

Because of the plea, Sosic entered into a consent decree with the State Board of Medicine to indefinitely suspend his medical license.

Police say an office employee claimed Sosic grabbed her rear end and made a sexually suggestive comment to her Jan. 27. After those charges were publicized, a patient came forward to claim she was fondled after an ultrasound in June 2012.

Sosic pleaded guilty to indecent assault in both cases.

Losing your livelihood indefinitely sounds pretty serious to me. I guess they could have opted to hang him.

It wouldn't make a difference to me. I said what I said and stand behind it. Changing players to me wouldn't make a difference. The severity of the punishment is just.

I was molested by my former male gynecologist too - who would also recommend a breast and vagina exam 'just in case'.

I'm 100% female gyno now and feel much safer - I'm no longer just some piece of flesh to be fondled by a pervert with an education.
