Sexual Assault

I was sexually assaulted here. Richard Abisla wanted to show me my ovaries on the ultrasound after he’d completed the exam. I didn’t want unnecessary probing so I told him i knew what they looked like and wasn’t interested. He told me verbatim, ‘I do this for all my patients' and proceeded to move the ultrasound wand inside me. I tried to sit up and his nurse/receptionist who was in the room put her HANDS on me and forcefully PUSHED me back on the table. I froze- a flight or flight reaction- and was in shock. While I wasn’t able to do so at the time, I’m speaking out now because these people have NO BUSINESS treating patients. If a patient asks you to stop, you do not PUSH them back onto the table- that is sexual assault. If you or anyone you know have been assaulted by Dr. Richard Abisla, as I was, please file a report with the Falmouth PD and email me at assaultvictims@gmail.com. This man should not have a medical license, and his nurse should not be allowed near patients. Please speak up so that other women don't have to go thru this.
