TX med board alleges psychiatrist Charles Fischer sexually abused nine teenage patients

January 7, 2012

In late November 2011, the Texas Medical Board posted a document its website containing the results of a state investigation of psychiatrist Charles Fischer.

With the results of that investigation, the state suspended Fischer on an emergency basis, pending a hearing.

Austin State Hospital,where Fischer worked for 20 year, fired Fischer after confirming two cases of sexual abuse. 

According to Texas Medical Board attorney Christopher Palazola, "The victims' statements in the file contained indications of a disturbing pattern of grooming, building trust and then abusing young boys who were sent to (Fischer) for the expressed purpose of getting help with their own (psychiatric) issues."
