A pediatric psychiatrist in Doylestown was arrested Thursday and charged with inappropriately touching three female patients during treatments, according to the Bucks County District Attorney's Office.
Basem Shlewiet, 42, who has a private practice on North Franklin Street, allegedly fondled the breasts of two patients - ages 22 and 14 - while purporting to use a stethoscope, according to a criminal complaint. He touched a 17-year-old around the groin, the complaint said.
All three incidents occurred in 2013, according to the complaint.
Shlewiet was charged with multiple counts of indecent assault, corruption of a minor, and unlawful contact with a minor.
