The Medical Board of California revoked the medical license of Los Gatos Dr. Jose Raul Bolanos, an OB/GYN who was convicted of sexually molesting a patient.
“The mission of the Medical Board is public protection, and this action reflects the board’s ongoing commitment to that mission,” said Linda Whitney, interim executive director of the board.
On Sept. 26, 2008, Bolanos was arrested by Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police and charged with sexual battery after a patient at the Los Gatos clinic accused him of sexually assaulting her.
While the case was in court, a judge required Dr. Bolanos to be in the presence of a chaperon whenever he was with a female patient.
In August, a San Jose jury convicted him of misdemeanor sexual battery. During the trial, at least six other patients testified against him.
Bolanos lost his right to practice on Monday.
