LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The doctor accused of sexual abusing patients returned to work Monday caring for pregnant women and their unborn children.
Some patients said they are standing by Dr. Paul Kelty, even as others came forward with further accusations.
Amber McAmish returned to doctor Paul Kelty less than a week after investigators raided his Corydon practice. "When I delivered my daughter," she says, "he was just awesome."
She's not the only one. Donna Bottom told WDRB News Kelty is thanking patients for keeping their appointments: "Dr. Kelty has been taking care of me for three years. The man has never done none of the things that they say he is doing. He has been very professional."
Court records say Kelty over-prescribed a toxic cocktail of Hydrocodone and Zanax and frauded the government out of Medicare payments by pushing patients into unnecessary procedures and office visits.
Otto Schalk, Harrison County Prosecutor, said Monday, "Since 2009, Dr. Kelty has prescribed more than one million pills, and since 2008 alone six of his patients have fatally overdosed."
That's not all -- the gynecologist is also accused of touching several of his patients sexually. Jane Taylor, a former Kelty patient, says, "I knew that he was doing things wrong."
More of Kelty's prior patients are coming forward with complaints. Taylor says she was in labor for 19 hours and there were complications that Kelty ignored. She said her son had an irregular heartbeat and was not getting enough oxygen to his brain. "I said where's Doctor Kelty, and she said well, he's not going to come until tomorrow. And I said tomorrow, and then I said, you mean my baby's in distress, and the nurse said yeah, the nurse said a little bit of distress."
Taylor's son David is 25 now, and autistic: "I think there has to be something that died in there when he didn't get any oxygen."
Dr. Kelty has not been arrested or charged, as investigators are still combing through evidence and until that changes he can see as many patients as he wants. Taylor wants officials to look deeper and contact all of his prior patients: "I don't think I'm the only one, I think other parents have had problems too."
Meanwhile McAmish remains faithful, just a few months away from giving birth again: "He birthed my daughter. I don't want to go to another person."
WDRB News looked into Doctor Kelty's medical license and found no litigation against the doctor in the last 10 years.
