ORLANDO, Fla. — A licensed massage therapist is accused of inappropriately touching female patients at a Massage Envy in Dr. Phillips
Frederick Dost did not comment about the accusations to Channel 9’s Jeff Deal.
The Florida Department of Health ordered an emergency restriction on Dost’s license, keeping him from treating female patients.
The first complaint to the health department came in from a patient at Massage Envy.
“When I wake up, it's the first thing I think about. When I go to bed, it's the last thing. I have nightmares,” said a woman who did not want to be identified.
The woman told Channel 9 that Dost touched her breasts and pushed his genitals on top of her head.
“I was in shock at first. I was scared. I didn't know what to do and I froze,” she said.
No criminal charges were filed. So she went to the health department last year.
While that case was under investigation, a similar complaint came in earlier this year about a woman visiting from Michigan who claimed Dost did the same thing to her while she was in Siesta Key.
Channel 9 found out that Massage Envy received a complaint about Dost in 2013 from another woman who reported "his hands went down between her breasts."
”I don't want somebody else to be lying on that table and have this happen to them,” the woman said.
A website with Dost's name on it has this message: “He has never disappeared, been unavailable for interviews, attacked or abused a massage client or been arrested or charged with a crime.”
The two patients who have filed complaints with the health department are suing Dost.
