According to News Line 9 (WOAW), "A former Marshfield doctor accused of illegally touching sedated
patients surrenders his license to practice medicine." This surrender allows him to escape legal action by the Wisconsin Department of Regulation and Licensing. The Wisconsin Medical Board declared Dr. Kevin Lang guilty of sexual contact with a patient. He also volunteered that he had additional inappropriate contact with patients before this incident. Lang was a practicing gastroenterologist.
Lang is being sued by former patients for malpractice. The county is also prosecuting him for felony sexual assault. WEAU reports, "Kevin Lang is facing five counts
of second degree sexual assault of an intoxicated victim."
Lang can apply for a license in the future, but the board has to authorize it. They can place any restrictions or limitations on a license, if he decides to reapply.
