These are difficult cases because all cases must be substantiated by a preponderance of the evidence. (More likely than not) Was anyone else in the room? Usually these types of docs have violated many other women. You can start by looking up his license to see if he has any previous disciplinary actions by the medical board. Then search the county website for any previous lawsuits against him. In the absence of objective evidence it becomes a "he said, she said" case which most attorneys won't take. So you need to start by doing your homework.
You should report the doctor to the medical board. You can also google "sexual abuse lawyers" and get representation of a sexual abuse lawyer to evaluate your claim. For general information regarding sexual abuse, you can visit my website. Good luck to you.

I agree with Mr. Lassen. Report this to your state's medical board. Here is link to the CA Medical Board's complaint process: http://www.mbc.ca.gov/consumer/Index.html
If this physician has any type of history of this, going to the Board will be helpful because it is likely others before you have complained. It is definitely hard to prove these things without a witness. However, it is important that track-records of this behavior is kept formally somewhere. The Board does that.
