LOS ANGELES (CNS) — Ex-USC student health center gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall, who has been accused by hundreds of former patients of inappropriate sexual behavior during exams, has agreed to temporarily surrender his medical license while state regulators review his case.
According to an agreement dated Monday between Tyndall and the Medical Board of California, Tyndall agreed to the temporary suspension, which will remain in place until the board makes a final decision about his future as a doctor.
Tyndall “willingly enters into this stipulation with full understanding that he will not be permitted to practice medicine while this order is in effect,” according to the agreement, which was posted on the Medical Board’s website and first reported by the Los Angeles Times.
The suspension will “remain in place while an accusation has been filed and until the effective date of the final decision of the Medical Board of California,” according to the document.
Tyndall and USC have been sued by hundreds of alleged victims, many of whom claim they were inappropriately fondled or photographed by Tyndall under the guise of gynecological exams. Many have also accused him of making sexually charged comments during the exams.
