Mesa Cardiologist Accused of Fondling Two Patients
Mesa cardiologist Richard Lewis was booked into jail recently on suspicion of fondling the breasts of two female patients.
Lewis, 53, is alleged to have fondled one woman in late 2008 during a pre-surgery exam. Cops say last Thursday he fondled a woman's breasts who was just waking up from a surgery he had performed. The victim reported a "sharp pain" in breasts just as the anesthesia was wearing off, and suddenly realized Dr. Lewis' hands were under her gown.
Police wonder if more victims will come forward. That's what happened with infamous abortion doctor Brian Finkel, who claimed falsely that he needed to touch women as part of his exams.
