YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: After being arrested on charges of fondling a patient’s breasts and making inappropriate sexual comments to staff working at assisted-living residences, a Northvale podiatrist continued practicing without a license, a grand jury indictment returned in Hackensack alleges.
Frederick M. Weintraub, 63, of Upper Saddle River, was indicted yesterday on a single third-degree count of “practicing medicine without a license or with a revoked license” on April 28 of this year in Northvale.
As CLIFFVIEW PILOT first reported, Northvale police arrested and charged Weintraub on Oct. 25, 2012 after a patient at Alpine Northern Valley Podiatry reported that he fondled her breasts before a routine podiatry exam.
The state Board of Medical Examiners held a hearing two months later and suspended his license in January 2013.
At that time, state authorities said Weintraub also was accused of touching the breasts of a staff member at an assisted living residence where he was providing podiatric services.
They considered the staff member a second abused patient because Weintraub had previously treated her.
The company operating the residences terminated Weintraub in June 2012 and reported him to the Board of Medical Examiners, which began investigating him before his arrest in Northvale.
Weintraub has remained free pending further action.
