Florida podiatrist charged with abusing patient


A 77-year-old podiatrist in Palm Beach, Fla. was charged with sexual battery involving a patient, and investigators believe he may have abused others, NBC affiliate WPTV reported Oct. 25.

A 61-year-old patient saw Saul Lipsman, DPM, for foot pain on March 11, the report said. He treated her, and the next day he told her to return for a cream that could help. At the follow-up visit, he allegedly touched her inappropriately and tried to kiss her, the report said. 

He was taken into custody Oct. 21 on one count of sexual battery on a person over 18, the report said. He posted $10,000 bail and was released from Palm Beach County Jail the next day.

Detectives believe there may be other victims, according to the report.
