SHAME: Dr. Lance Everett Wyatt, a prominent Los Angeles-based plastic surgeon, has been arrested and charged with unlawful filming of another, unlawful viewing of another and two counts of sexual battery on another patient. Wyatt, who specializes in plastic and reconstructive surgery, has appeared on ABC News’ 20/20 and television show “The Doctors.”
Wyatt was charged with six misdemeanors, punishable by up to two years in prison. His bail was set at $50,000, which he posted immediately.
Dr. Wyatt was arrested for recording two post-op patients. It could be customary for him to film patients in his line of work, but they must give him consent to do so, as NBC Los Angeles’ Medical Editor Dr Bruce Hensel notes.
Dr. Lance Everett Wyatt, who was named by EBONY magazine as one of the ’50 leaders of tomorrow,’ is a graduate of UCLA and worked as a fellow for Harvard Medical School.
