Lehrer Investigation Ends, 8/26/1989

Staff reports, Orlando Sentinel

The state Board of Medicine has closed its investigation of a Fort Lauderdale doctor who was accused last year of performing an abortion on a woman against her will, a board official said.

The case against gynecologist Theodore Lehrer, 52, was dropped this week because the woman, who suffers from Hodgkin`s disease, would not testify against him, medical board chairman Dr. Fuad Ashkar said.

The victim had charged in April 1988 that Lehrer handcuffed her and aborted her 11-week-old fetus at his home. Lehrer has denied the allegations.

Closing the case means an emergency suspension order against Lehrer has been set aside and his medical license will be reinstated.

Criminal charges against Lehrer were dismissed by the Broward State Attorney`s Office in June because of the woman`s decision not to testify.

Dear Pastor Rogers
Please be advised that these false, derogatory and malicious allegations were made over 25 years ago and after a thorough investigations all these untenable allegations were completely dismissed by action of the State Attorney. The staff at All Women’s Clinic must have as condition to their employment a clear police record and a negative background check. In addition to complying with these requirements, our doctor has had no medical malpractice judgements in over 30 years, has record of excellence in medical practice. Is widely recognized for his expertise in first and second trimester termination of pregnancy and a safety record that is second to none. I would appreciate it if you provide similar visibility to this reply as those derogatory and non-factual staled allegations.
