Doctor Accused by Second Woman of Sexual Abuse

A local doctor has been accused by a second woman of sexual abuse. Former St. Charles hospital oncologist, 70-year-old Theodore Braich, is accused of inappropriately touching a 77-year-old patient in 2017. A $700,000 lawsuit was filed this week in Deschutes County Circuit Court. Braich was sued for $1 million dollars last summer by another following sexual abuse allegations after she underwent a medical exam at St. Charles in 2020. Braich, who retired in January, denied the claims in the first case and attempted to have the first lawsuit dismissed. He has yet to be served with the second lawsuit. Attorney Greg Kafoury, who represents both women, said sexual predators are often drawn to the medical profession because of the high level of impunity it offers.
