Pennsylvania's State Board of Medicine said Friday it temporarily suspended the license of a doctor accused of inappropriately touching two patients at his White Oak office in the past year.

Raja Chakrapani, 59, of Fox Chapel faces four counts of indecent assault and two counts of harassment, both misdemeanors. Police said Chakrapani touched and rubbed against two women during routine check-ups.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 12.

In its suspension order, the Board of Medicine said the allegations “if taken as true, establish at each and every count that the continued practice of medicine by (Chakrapani) presents an immediate danger to the public health and safety.”

It will hold a hearing on the suspension within 30 days.
