Dr. Arturo Vargas of Montebello Has Practice Restrictions Placed on his Medical License
Dr. Arturo Vargas has been ordered by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Upinder not to see any female patients while his criminal case is pending. While this is a common order when a male physician is accused of sexual acts with a patient, the order could have simply required a female chaperone be present for examinations with female patients.
Physicians are often the target of criminal claims by patients. This could be because the claims are true but it could also involve a misunderstanding or even an attempt to make a buck on a ciivl claim. All of the above scenarios are types of cases handled by our California Medical License Defense Firm. Attorneys need to be very aggressive in how the defend the well earned reputation of a California physician. If not, there can be an overwhelming response to law enforcement after a sexual assault by physician case become public. People will manufacture events so they can have their attorney try and settle quietly with a medical organization like Kaiser.
