LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- On Tuesday afternoon, the Commonwealth of Kentucky issued an order barring an east Louisville doctor accused of sexual abuse from seeing female patients.
Doctor Ghias Arar was charged with sexual abuse after a first-time patient said the doctor fondled her and touched himself during an exam Friday. Tara Batrice says a hospital collected DNA evidence during an exam after the alleged incident.
Arar's attorneys claim Batrice was trying to get prescription pain medicine.
They say Arar was released from jail on bond Saturday and could continue to see patients.
But on Tuesday afternoon, the Commonwealth of Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure issued an emergency order of restriction barring Dr. Arar from seeing female patients.
The order states the following:
"Based upon the foregoing Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, the Chair of Inquiry Panel A hereby ORDERS that the license to practice medicine in the Commonwealth of Kentucky held by Ghias M. Arar, M.D., is RESTRICTED and Dr. Arar is prohibited from entering into a physician-patient relationship, examining, treating or personally interacting with any female patient until the resolution of the Complaint setting forth the allegations discussed in this pleading, or until such further Order of this Board."
