Complaint: Doctor engaged in sexual conversations, touching

Associated Press

Lansing – The Michigan attorney general’s office says a mid-Michigan doctor failed to provide adequate care and engaged in inappropriate sexual conversation and touching with two male patients.

The Lansing State Journal reports the allegations are included in a recently filed administrative complaint with the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs against Dr. John Laurain.

Sanctions could include stripping Laurain’s medical license. The complaint comes as the Ingham County prosecutor’s office weighs whether to charge Laurain nearly seven months after a former patient accused him of sexual assault and medical negligence.

Laurain formerly worked for Sparrow Health System. He has denied the allegations. Laurain’s lawyers reiterated his denial in a Thursday statement about the complaint, with attorney Randall Juip saying Laurain “will vigorously defend his care and treatment.”
