Skeptic News: Chiropractor accused of sexual contact

From: Federal Way Mirror

A Federal Way chiropractor’s license was suspended this week over charges of sexual contact with three female patients.

Greg Summers, owner of Summers Chiropractic and Massage at 2201 SW 356th St., is accused of touching three patients inappropriately, according to the state Department of Health and the Chiropractic Quality Assurance Commission.

The first incident allegedly took place in March or April 2010. According to a statement of charges, Summers inserted his fingers into a patient’s vagina “for the alleged purposes of massaging the patient internally to prevent scar tissue from forming and to alleviate pain.”

That patient was also an employee at the clinic and was required to provide massages to Summers in training sessions, according to documents. During those sessions, Summers allegedly talked about his marital issues and how he would “offer his body” as a teaching tool on “how to get a man hard,” according to documents.

A second patient ended treatment at the clinic after Summers allegedly touched her breasts during a chiropractic treatment session in September 2010. He is also accused of altering the patient’s medical records after she filed a complaint.

A third patient, who began seeking treatment at the clinic in 1994, was undergoing treatment in April or May 2011 when Summers allegedly told her that it would be easier to massage her groin area “intravaginally,” according to documents. Summers then allegedly inserted his finger into the patient’s vagina.

Summers has 20 days to respond to the charges and ask for a hearing, and cannot practice in Washington until the charges are resolved, according to the health department.
