On Sept. 17, 2020, Corbin sexually assaulted one of his female patients while he prepped her for a surgical procedure, according to prosecutors.

Both women reported the incidents to the Brea Police Department in California.

“Patients entrust their very lives to the doctors who treat them,” Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in announcing the arrest. “No one seeking medical treatment should have to worry about being sexually assaulted while under a doctor’s care. These women were in very vulnerable situations and their doctor capitalized on those vulnerabilities for his own sexual gratification.”

Anyone with additional information about the alleged assaults is asked to call Det. Ryan Trent at the Brea Police Department at (714) 990-7618.
