LEAVENWORTH, Kan. – A former physician assistant at the Leavenworth VA Hospital is now facing charges for allegedly abusing patients.

“Initially, he seemed to be an okay physician, but during some of the routine visits that I had to visit with him, there were things I would consider to be inappropriate,” one veteran told KSHB.

He said Mark Wisner would insist on doing unnecessary prostate exams at nearly every appointment, even when the veteran went in for a headache.

“He would fondle or touch my testicles without gloves and there seemed to be no real cause for that,” he said.

In February, Wisner surrendered his medical license after several claims of sexual abuse were made.

He was also accused of keeping inaccurate medical records and over-medicating patients.

“It certainly violates veterans’ trust. We’re dealing with a number of issues and to have to come back to the agency tasked with caring for our nation’s veterans is now adding further wounds to the nation’s veterans,” he said.

Wisner is now facing charges of sexual battery and criminal aggravated sodomy.
