Indiana Medical Licensing Board Suspends Dr. Benjamin Loveridge’s License

The Indiana Medical Licensing Board has suspended the medical license of Dr. Benjamin Loveridge after several female patients have accused him of making sexual advances towards them and touching them in a sexual way.

Loveridge practices at the Kane Loveridge Wellness Group in New Castle, which he owns and operates alongside his wife.

The Indiana Attorney General’s Office says that one woman contacted the authorities with an accusation. This led to an investigation which uncovered evidence of other possible victims.

Loveridge previously practiced in the US Air Force, before he and his wife launched the Kane Loveridge Wellness Group. While practicing there, he was accused of having a sexual relationship with a patient who he was treating for depression, anxiety, and panic attacks following her divorce.

In one incident, he reportedly asked a woman if she “wanted to be daring”, reached down her shirt, and touched her hair without consent. In another, documents describe a mock strip-tease involving a female staff sergeant.

He faced similar allegations while practicing in Utah

Loveridge was refused a medical license in multiple other states, but was able to get one in Indiana. He was ordered to always have a chaperone when dealing with female patients. However, this requirement was waived in 2015 following an appearance before the state medical board.

More women came forward with allegations of abuse in late 2018, which prompted state officials to get involved. One patient contacted the Attorney General’s office to report that Loveridge had touched her sexually during an appointment and that he would regularly ask her if she wanted to make out following appointments.

According to the AG’s office, Loveridge’s conduct constitutes a “clear and immediate danger to public health and safety.” His license was ordered suspended for 90 days and the board will eventually determine if this suspension should be extended for another 90 days.

No criminal charges have been filed at this time.
