An Emergency Order from the state Health Department points out Dr. Kenneth Zane Finger's “history of sexually abusing his patients” as reason for his license constraint.
JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla.– A Jacksonville Beach chiropractic specialist has been purchased to stay away from all female clients after a lady reported a sexual encounter throughout a March treatment session
, according to the Florida Department of Health. The Sept. 8 emergency situation restriction order against Kenneth Zane Finger at First Coast Chiropractic says the March event breaks a 2015 settlement agreement that mandated a chaperone when he dealt with female patients. It was bought after another lady said he performed foreplay on her throughout a 2014 treatment.
The Sept. 8 order states that Finger does not show the “requisite judgment or excellent ethical character”necessary to be a chiropractic specialist, and his actions present a danger to female clients
.”Additionally, Finger's history of sexually abusing his clients reveals that this habits is most likely to continue, “it said. “Further, Finger's ostentatious offense of [the 2015 settlement] demonstrates that a requirement for a chaperone to be present during treatment of female patients is insufficient to protect the public.”
Finger has actually not been criminally charged. Finger is noted on First Coast Chiropractic's site as one of two chiropractors at its Jacksonville Beach workplace. No one at the workplace reacted to an email and phone call seeking remark.
The preliminary incident occurred on May 5, 2014, when a 28-year-old lady came in to First Coast for treatment of back and thigh pain, according to the initial administrative problem submitted with the state Health Department. Finger asked the woman to remove her underwear while he was outside of the treatment room, then got in as she was lying under a sheet, the problem stated.
> During the massage session, the sheets came off and the chiropractic physician started to engage in a sex act on her, the complaint stated. The lady grabbed his wrist and informed him to stop, and he said sorry. He told her that “she had an a fantastic body,” then kissed the woman and told her to get dressed.
Finger received probation from the state Board of Chiropractic Medicine and a reprimand along with a $ 7,500 fine, however the state's final order enabled him to continue to practice although mandated he log all female patient gos to and have a chaperone at each. The latest occurrence happened when a 20-year-old woman concerned the office for acupuncture on her back, the emergency constraint said. It states
that he did not have a chaperone inside as she undressed and put down on the test table, the document stated. As she lay on her stomach, Finger put his privates on her, the order stated. The woman said she felt “breached, ashamed and disgusted, “the order stated.
No police report was submitted versus Finger in the March 5 session or the initial Dec. 8 2014 event, according to court and prison records. But Duval County court records reveal a malpractice civil claim was filed in 2016 versus Finger, the complainant recognized by the exact same initials as the victim in the 2014 occurrence. The claim was administratively closed on Jan. 23 after no action occurred, court records show.
