New allegations against Volusia Co. doctor accused of groping patients



VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - A Volusia County doctor is facing more allegations that he inappropriately touched female patients.

South Daytona police said five female patients have come forward claiming Dr. Indravadan Shah touched them in places he shouldn’t have while they were alone in his exam room.

Last month, Channel 9 reported how women claimed he rubbed their breasts, and one said he tried to pull her pants down.

The most recent case could be the most serious because police are calling it an attempted sexual battery.

“You don’t go into a room as a male doctor without a nurse accompanying you, just to prevent situations like this,” said Shah’s neighbor, Mary Lyle.

Lyle is also a nurse and said the whole situation sounds unusual.

So far, Shah has not been charged with a crime and still has an active license to practice medicine.

State prosecutors are trying to decide if they should file charges in three of the cases.

In the newest case, the patient claimed as she tried to escape his office, Shah got behind her and put his hands down her pants.

Investigators said all of the alleged victims claim Shah asked about their tattoo locations and then started touching their breasts.

Channel 9’s Jeff deal went to Shah’s million dollar Ormond Beach house to ask him about the allegations, but the person who answered said he wasn’t home.
