Osceola County - On December 9, Osceola County Sheriff's detectives arrested Basharat Hussain and charged him with Sexual Battery.
The investigation began on December 8 when deputies took a report from a 20-year old woman.
The victim told deputies her physician is Dr. Basharat Hussain, owner of Wellness & Primary Care located at 2901 E. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway in Kissimmee.
Approximately 3 weeks ago, she visited his office for an annual gynecological examination. During the exam, Dr. Hussain and a female nurse were in the room.
Based on the results of her exam, Dr. Hussain referred her to a gynecologist for follow up.
On December 7, the victim went to Dr. Hussain's office for a different medical reason. While at the office, Dr. Hussain asked her about the concern he had from her first visit, and then he conducted another gynecological examination, but unlike the visit several weeks ago, he did not use gloves and a nurse was not present in the room.
On December 8, the victim called Dr. Hussain's office to request a doctor's note for work purposes. When no one answered, she went to the office but a sign on the door indicated they were closed. She saw Dr. Hussain by his car in the parking lot and asked him about writing her a note and he invited her inside. While in his office, Dr. Hussain asked her about pains she was having in her stomach from an earlier visit. He asked her to stand up, he lifted her dress up and began checking her without gloves on. At one point, he asked her if she felt excited. The victim told Dr. Hussain she was uncomfortable and she asked for the note for work purposes, so she could leave. He handed her the work note and she left. The victim immediately went to the Sheriff's Office to report the incident.
On December 9, detectives contacted Dr. Hussain, but he refused to speak with investigators without an attorney present. Based on the victim's statements and evidence obtained by detectives, Dr. Hussain was arrested and charged with 1 count of Sexual Battery.
Detectives are asking anyone else who may have had a similar incident to contact the Osceola County Sheriff's Office at (407) 348-2222.
