An Iowa doctor has had his medical license suspended for alleged sexual misconduct involving co-workers who were also patients.

The Iowa Board of Medicine suspended 39-year-old Brian Hansen’s medical license Tuesday after an investigation into complaints he engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with six females he worked with, but was also providing medical care for.

The allegations claim Hansen physically threatened one woman to engage in sexual acts with him. He is also accused of watching pornography and masturbating in the presence of some of the victims while at work.

The alleged incidents happened while Hansen was practicing medicine in Hampton from 2009 to May of this year. Up until the suspension, he had been practicing emergency medicine in Webster City, Fairfield, and Charles City.

Hansen is now barred from practicing medicine in Iowa until the board decides otherwise.

A hearing in the matter is scheduled for October 10th.
