University Sports Doctor Accused of Sexually Assaulting Two Patients

Live 5 News has reported that sexual assault charges have been filed against a sports doctor at Texas A&M University located at Administration Building, 400 Bizzell St, College Station, TX 77843. 

On Wednesday, May 4, 2022, 44-year-old Dr. Kory Lee Gill was arrested. Gill specialized in primary care sports medicine and was employed with the Texas A&M Athletics Department. Previously, Gill was an assistant professor of Family & Community Medicine for the Texas A&M College of Medicine. He also worked with healthcare facilities in the area of Bryan-College Station. 

The investigation began after the first female victim reported she was sexually assaulted during her fourth treatment as his patient in November 2021. She was offered free treatment, and during the session, the medical professional offered her a drink of alcohol before sexually assaulting her. The victim claimed she blacked out and woke up inside her home, not knowing how she got there. When she confronted Gill, he apologized and became emotional. 

The second victim's story is similar. The doctor also offered to treat her for no charge. During a session in April 2021, Gill offered her alcohol and sexually assaulted her. 

Gill has been fired by the university and no longer serves the healthcare facilities in the area. He is facing two counts of sexual assault.

Can I Sue a Doctor For Sexual Assault?

Texas attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents victims of doctor sexual assault in civil lawsuits. Marc recently shared some information regarding the legal rights of victims sexually assaulted by a sports doctor.

Patients expect that medical professionals, including sports doctors on a university campus, will provide them with the medical treatment needed to heal while conducting themselves respectfully and professionally. Most medical doctors are respectful professionals, but sadly there have been numerous reports of patients being sexually assaulted by their medical providers. Patients should know they have legal rights to seek the justice they deserve while holding any parties accountable for the abuse."

"Too often, sexual abuse occurs due to the medical facility's negligence. Whether they failed to provide basic safety procedures to reduce the risk or if they ignored complaints of misconduct, they could be held liable. In addition to the university that oversees the office, a medical facility would be responsible for conducting background checks on all staff members and requiring chaperones during exams. If a facility fails to offer necessary precautions, it could be considered negligent. Additionally, if there were reports of misconduct by a doctor, an investigation should be done to prevent further abuse."

"Victims abused by a sports doctor are encouraged to speak with an experienced doctor sexual assault attorney. Compensation may be available for patients in addition to holding those responsible accountable for their negligence."
