Doctor Sued for Using Sex as Treatment
An Oregon woman is suing her doctor for treating her back pain with sexual intercourse, according to Yahoo! News. A $4 million lawsuit was filed against Randall Smith, who billed Oregon Health Plan $5000 for 45 minute sessions with the woman in which he administered “treatment” in the form of sexual intercourse. Smith, who convinced the woman that having sex with him would “help alleviate her lower back and lower extremity pain”, was stripped of his medical license last year and sent to jail for sixty days following the incident. The lawsuit, filed in Multnomah County court this week, cited intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress. Smith pleaded guilty to submitting false health care claims but was adamant that the sex with his patient was consensual.
