Police Ask for Search Warrant Regarding Sosic;
Admitting Privileges Suspended at BRMC

Bradford obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Abaz Sosic has been accused of indecent assault against three women – an intern in his office, a co-worker at Bradford Regional Center and a patient.

Because of the allegations BRMC has suspended Sosic’s admitting privileges, effective immediately, pending the outcome of the investigation.

City police have also requested a search warrant for the hospital.

In an affidavit of probable cause asking for the search warrant, police say they “believe there exists enough evidence to show that there are documents and records located at Bradford Regional Medical Center which will show a common plan or scheme. ... this documentation will provide further evidence showing a pattern of Sosic’s misconduct while working at Bradford Regional Medical Center.”

The allegations, which date back to 2008, first came to light on Wednesday when police filed misdemeanor charges of indecent assault and harassment against Sosic in connection to an alleged incident on January 27.

He is accused of inappropriately touching a physicians assistant intern in the break room of his Boylston Street office. The affidavit says that after he touched her inappropriately she told him “no” numerous times, but he continued touching her. He then make sexually graphic comments to her and said he wanted to do an examination on her.

After she left the room, the affidavit says, he followed her, continued touching her. She left and called her college advisor, who told her to discontinue her clinical rotation with him immediately. Sosic called her later, attempting to apologize, but she did not take the call.

Earlier today, charges were filed in connection to a June 2012 incident in which he is accused of inappropriately touching a patient while she was in his office for an ultrasound. She described a hug as being “an uncomfortable long time” and said as she began to pull away he tried to kiss her, according to the affidavit.

After she told him “no” multiple times as he was inappropriately touching her he “backed off” and then told her “he liked her and thought she was pretty and she was a good mom and a good patient,” the affidavit says. He then asked that she “keep this between them.”

In May of 2008 a co-worker of Sosic’s at BRMC said that working in the operating room he had been making “off color comments” for a few weeks and then had started touching her inappropriately. He also allegedly told her to come to his office at 8 p.m. after it was closed.

She immediately reported the incident to supervisors at BRMC, but says she quit her job because of these incidents.

I don't trust brmc, period, let alone this quack.

When I went on the weekend....either his wife or daughters were there working the desk or my husband was with me. Who goes alone to get an ultrasound???? Makes no sense at all. People are nuts and money hungry.

Just another cover up by BRMC. This is not the first time they covered something up for one of there good doctors. I know this as a FACT. I hope the boys in blue nail there asses to the wall. He's not the only doctor/criminal they hide. Pervs

It infuriates me that all this publicity is out there for Sosic's allegations, but when a young woman was drugged and raped by a local doctor, went to the police, who treated her terribly....not ONE word in the paper or news. She spoke to police 3=4 times and they did everything in their power to convince her she had no case... so she dropped it. I know for a FACT the damage she sustained and torture she endured. There is so much political bullshit in this town. I guarantee you the females making these accusations have money or power... the only reason its being broadcast all over the place.

I commend the intern for being brave enough to come forward. By looking at the facebook pages of wesb adn the era it's easy to see why women don't want to make allegations against a prominant citizen! I'm wondering how all the people trashing her would feel if she was their daughter?

Anonymous said...

Don't believe a word of it... worked with him for years. In the OR , in his office, on the units. His wife is always at the office...her office is in there too. His daughters are always there on weekends, and a nurse always accompanies him into the rooms for exams. Somebodys looking for money or a passing grade of sympathy.

Angela Haynoski said...

Its all bull shit. He's still the best Dr there is and its quite funny a women fighting for unemployment comes forward with accusations to win her case then followed by one who's tried or has got with all her co workers and lastly a so called patient that thinks hmmm let's get some money out of the best paid Dr in the area. He is a very good man with a very good heart and I will gladly show and testify on his behalf

Anonymous said...

there will be NO MONEY GRANTED to the victims of this alleged criminal activity by Sosic… this is a criminal case NOT a civil case…. Please if you’re going to comment on a matter please know your facts.. Honestly I commend the victims for taking a stand! The only payment they will ever get out of this is Justice NOT money… but the truth is priceless in my book…

745- I have had the same thing on my mind! That doctor walks around like he is wonderful and it makes me sick to even look at him. As for Dr Sosic I am in shock over this. He was so wonderful when I had two misscarriages before he delivered my daughter. I will pray for the truth and all parties involved

Anonymous said...

my mother and aunt worked with him and all these years he never onced passed any sexual comments.. money hungry ppl thats how i feel... he delivered both my children. HE IS AN AMAZING DOCTOR. his wife was always there on weekends somewhere running around

Well said....I know too. I hope he loses everything. And as for the other doctor his day will come too. Don't these clowns take a oath.

Fine support him, but take this into consideration. Ifthe allegations came from your wife, daughter, sister, mother or grand daughter you would have a completely different answer. We are telling a person who had allegedly been sexually assaulted that she it's lying just because you think he is an upstanding citizen. If it were a teacher we would be after their teaching license and reputation because they assaulted a kid. I remind you that these comments are the reason women and MEN do not report rape and sexual assault because they are afraid to be further victimized by people who think they are lying. The comment I thought was most awful I read was that because his wife was beautiful he had no reason to cheat on her, I am obviously paraphrasing, but that comment could be taken as an inappropriate sexual comment but it's okay to say....You people make me wonder about what happened to our world...

This is stupid i bet before he sees the judge there will be more accusations if he did something to someone then they shouldve said something long before now i mean really why wait till 2014

There are a lot of people who go alone to get an ultrasound. I have gone for all of mine alone and there was never anyone else in his office. Nothing happened to me but that does not mean it did not happen to other people. I am 37 weeks pregnant and I loved Dr. Sosic as my doctor. I am sad that this late in my pregnancy I have to switch. That being said I applaud these women worn their bravery to speak out. No one is saying he is a bad doctor, they are saying he did bad things.
Also does anyone else find it disturbing that the court police would sit on a report made a year and a half ago? Was it because the woman was a Healthy Beginnings patient (eg low income) vs being an educated intern? I think the should be an investigation into why it took so long for those allegations to come to light and be acted upon.

This is just sickening! Dr Sosic was and is the best Ob/Gyn in this town. Its discuting to think that people want to ruin a mans practice and his family just to make a few dollars! He was always polite and went out of his way to help people who were his patients. If it wasn;t for him, many people would of died during childbirth. He has a beautiful wife and kids and why would he throw that away for some peice of Bradford Trash?

Anonymous said...

Sosic wasn't dealing with patients at healthy beginnings in 2012, they would of had an ultrasound done at brmc by a tech not Sosic himself.

Anonymous said...

I am terribly sickened by this, Dr. Sosic to me is the best Dr. I have ever dealt with, and I don't feel if a Dr. who raped a girl, wasn't broadcasted all over and drug through the mud, I don't feel as though you have a case here either. Why don't the police concentrate on the drugs, and thieves in Bradford, and not worry about a search warrant for this particular incident, to me its hear say, and I don't believe a damn word of it, where was your search warrant for the DR. who raped and tortured a young woman? This is ridiculous and I think priorities need to be addressed.

Note: I wanted to publish this person comment but names of other doctors were mentioned. They have not been charged, so I took their names out. That is the difference -- they have not been charged. When and if they are, I will report it. ~~ Anne

How is it ******** can drug a girl, shove her in his trunk, take her to the ANF and dump her off and nothing comes of it. Dr. ******* is driving in a car getting a sexual favor, wrecks his car, nothing comes of that. All the other Dr. that have done "things" it is all sweep under the rug. So if they are going to make this a witch hunt and go through BRMC records then why don't they open a can of whoop ass and go after all of them. WHY??? we won't have any Dr. left in Bradford!!!

The people asking why it took so long for police to file charges have to remember this is not an episode of Law & Order SVU where everything gets settled in an hour.

Jill said...

I think some people are confused. Criminal charges have nothing to do with money. Even IF the doctor is found guilty the women will NOT get money from him.

Something else that's been bothering me is this: Did you ever think that when the woman went to police in 2012 she was the FIRST one to make a complaint and the police were waiting for someone else to come to them before they filed charges? The intern gave them a reason to file. I think both women are vry brave for coming forward.

I don't believe it ....I have been his patient and always a nurse in room .....and wife there on weekends .....

Anonymous said...

Here's a question. Were you with the doctor every time he was with patient every day? Just because he had a nurse in a room with him every time you saw him doesn't mean it happened every time. Seriously, people, use your brains. How well do you really know him? How much time do you spend with him? All together a few hours a year?

Anonymous said...

So if it was your daughter making the accusations would you still be saying it can't be true because he's a good doctor?

Anonymous said...

Charge from 2012 was doped because Dr. Sosic volunteered to do lay detector test and he passed! Why non of reports said that???

Anonymous said...

We'll assume you mean "lie" detector. We'll assume that you know who the victim is too. If not, how do you know it's not victim number FOUR? And would it surprise anyone who doesn't think he's God's gift to doctors that he could get around a lie detector test?

Anonymous said...

First of all no one is guilty til proven guilty. If these stories are true then that is very unfortunate for both parties. His family suffers as well.

As for those of you that must bring up the dr that "raped, drugged and dumped that girl" that's insane. You all say you know for a fact......really? Because if you actually disclose all of it, you will note that she actually called the cops and said she was fine.

All speculation....

I just can't help but wonder why a lot of people on here are saying things like, Oh, he never did that to me! Or, I've worked/known someone that worked with him and he never did that to me/them! Another one: He's such a great doctor!! His skills aren't in question here. Also, just because he didn't do it to you doesn't mean he didn't to someone else. Ever think he just didn't have an attraction? You can't look at someone and tell if they are like that or not... If we could nobody would ever go through this. I find it sad that the victims are being accused of lying, or being after his money. This is a criminal case here, the judge isn't handing out cash prizes to the victims in this case! It's sad that this is going on and I hope the truth comes out in court. Just please don't be so quick to judge either way.
