The DA's Office filed criminal charges against Hamid Rabiee. He is a neurologist.

The criminal complaint alleges nine felony counts, including sexual exploitation of a patient, sexual battery by restraint, and false imprisonment.

All of the charges relate to Dr. Rabiee's alleged inappropriate physical conduct toward patients under his care.

The criminal complaint alleges crimes against four separate female patients over an approximate five year period.

All of the alleged victims approached investigators independently and were not aware of the other victims' allegations.

The doctor's office is located on Eureka Way.

"Several of the victims did report very similar conduct. They were there for medical exams. At some point during the exam, the doctor requested that they turn around and perform certain exercises while he pressed his genitals up against them," said Stephanie Bridgett, the Shasta County District Attorney.

The Redding Police investigated multiple complaints on the doctor's inappropriate and unwelcomed physical contact. These acts were done under the guise of legitimate medical treatment.
