According to a complaint filed by the department of regulation and licensing, Lang inappropriately touched a female patient on March 13, 2009, as she was recovering from sedation after a procedure. Officials at St. Joseph’s Hospital confronted Lang about the incident. He gave up his hospital privileges, self reported the incident to the Medical Examining Board and sought treatment.
During treatment, Lang admitted 11 acts of sexual misconduct against patients between 2003 and 2007 as they went in and out of consciousness following their procedure.
Marshfield Clinic has set up a dedicated phone line for patients concerned about allegations in this case. The number is 715-221-6606.
“We deeply regret the actions of Dr. Lang and wish to express great sorrow to all those who have been affected,” the clinic said in a written statement late Wednesday.
Lang is not currently working as a doctor.
