Chiropractor Greg Summers gives up license after sexual misc

Greg Summers, a Federal Way chiropractor, surrendered his credential recently after he was convicted of sexual misconduct. He inappropriately touched three patients. On the 17th of July, he was convicted on 4 counts of indecent liberties by a King County Superior Court.
He surrendered his license, so he has agreed to never practice as a chiropractor again in Washington. His license was suspended in November 2012, and the legal process that was started then is complete.
Earlier, he had pled guilty during his plea and sentencing hearing at the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent. He was then sentenced to 14 days of community service and required to register as a sex offender within 30 days by Judge Mary Roberts. According to court documents, Summers caused at least 6 female patients to have sexual contact with him at this office while he provided chiropractic treatment, between January 2010 and September 2012. He received 78 days in prison. But the court, under the supervision of the Department of Corrections, accepted the 64 days he already spent in custody and allowed the remaining 14 days to be community service.
Summers has separated from his wife and sold his chiropractic business since charges were filed against him. He was raised in Federal Way and named Best of Federal Way each year between 2006 and 2012. He attended chiropractic school in Portland before he settled down to open his practice in Federal Way.
The documents relating to his disciplinary action are available online on the Department of Health website. Copies can be asked for by calling 360-236-4700. This was the report on the 2nd of September 2014.
9th November 2012: Owner of Summers Chiropractic and Massage at 356th Street was accused of touching three female patients inappropriately, says the state Department of Health and Chiropractic Quality Assurance Commission. The Federal Way chiropractor had his license suspended over charges of sexual contact this week. His attorney Robert Zielke released a statement saying that the doctor denied the allegations on the grounds that they were baseless. He said that anyone could file a complaint against a medical professional even when such complaints were not actionable or accurate. The charges were issued without the Department of Health hearing Summers’ testimony. He did not have the opportunity to present his evidence which is contradictory in nature, he said.
Allegedly, the first of the reported incidents took place in either March of April 2010. Summers apparently inserted his fingers inside a patient’s vagina, according to a statement of charges. He said that he had done it in order to massage her in order to prevent scar tissue from forming. Another reason he gave was that he wanted to alleviate the pain.
The patient who was abused also happens to be an employee at the very same clinic. She was required to give Summers massages during training sessions, according to documents. In those sessions, Summers allegedly talked about issues he and his wife were going through in their marriage. He offered his body as a teaching tool. What he taught was apparently how to get a man hard, show documents. A second patient stopped taking treatment at the clinic after the doctor allegedly touched her breasts. This happened in September 2010, during a chiropractic treatment session. Another accusation against him is that he altered this patient’s medical records, right after she filed a complaint against him.
The third patient had been seeking treatment from the clinic since 1994. She was undergoing her treatment in April of May of 2011, when Summers allegedly made an inappropriate sexual comment to her. He told her it would be easier to massage her intravaginally in her groin area, according to documents. Following this, the doctor allegedly put his fingers into her vagina.
Greg Summers has 20 days in which he needs to respond to the charges laid out against him. He will have to ask for a hearing. In the meantime, until such time in which all the charges are resolved, he will not be able to practice medicine in the state of Washington, according to the health department. Zielke said that his client would respond to the charges formally. He said that both he and Summers believed that all the charges would be dismissed as groundless ones in a statement.
On the 16th of December 2013, Summers was set to face a jury on the 8th of January 2014. He served time at King County jail earlier in the month when he did not appear citation. Summers missed September 23rd, a court date. The bench issued a warrant for his arrest on the same day. On December 5th, he was released from jail on his own recognizance. This is from documents from the King County Superior Court.
