Wisner subjected Doe to inappropriate sexual comments and examinations, according to the suit.
He “repeatedly” fondled Doe’s genitals and suggested that pain medication would be withheld if Doe didn’t submit to the examinations, the suit alleges.
Wisner voluntarily surrendered his license last year, admitting that he was an “impaired practitioner.”
The suit alleges that officials at the medical center failed to properly supervise Wisner and “knew or should have known” about his improper conduct.
