SOUTH DAYTONA, Fla. —

Investigators believe a South Daytona doctor accused of groping and harassing a woman may have been doing it to multiple women.

WFTV uncovered complaints of inappropriate touching and harassment by Dr. Indravadan Shah dating back to 2007.

The latest alleged victim told police Shah grabbed her inappropriately, kissed her, and tried to put his tongue in her mouth during a recent office visit.

Investigator Zack Pickett said there have been half a dozen new calls with similar claims going back to the early 1990s.

“The Police Department has received a number of complaints from Dr. Shah’s office, patients stating he’s touched them inappropriately,” Pickett said.

WFTV learned two others had already put their complaints in writing.

In 2010, a woman reported Shah was blocking her pathway out of the room, and while hugging her, he attempted to kiss her on the lips.

Last year, a patient claimed he asked if she had “fake boobs” and began touching and rubbing her breasts in a sexual manner, then tried to pull her pants down.

Police said the allegations are concerning.

“If he’s going to violate that trust, as far as the allegations he’s got, there’s no telling what else,” Pickett said.

Police stressed they want any more victims to come forward.
