More Victims Come Forward Against Dr. Syed

State & Regional
Mohsin Mazhar Syed Mug 720

Six more victims have come forward this week to accuse Doctor Mohsin Mazhar Syed of Midland. 

On June 1, Syed was arrested on a sexual assault charge. He was able to post bond to get out jail. 

Midland County District Attorney Laura Nodolf confirmed on Thursday that more victims came forward.

Nodolf also said that Syed tried to request his passport so he could visit his mother in Canada.  However, the request was denied.

Syed was indicted back in May and a trial date was set for October 9. 

According to the indictment, Syed sexually assaulted a patient on December 19, 2016.

The Texas Medical Board’s website said Syed’s medical license was suspended on June 15. 

The TMB website said the board acted, “after determining his continuation in the practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare.”

On June 15, the TMB suspension order said in part:

FINDINGS OF FACT

1. Respondent is an internal medicine physician practicing cosmetic surgery and aesthetics at the Medical Spa of Midland, 4506 Briarwood Avenue, Midland, Texas 79707.

2. In May 2017 Respondent was indicted on one count of felony sexual assault based on allegations that Respondent sexually assaulted a patient in December 2016 during an office visit.

3. It has been alleged that on or about December 19, 2016, Patient 1 had an appointment with Respondent during which he administered injections of Botox and “lip fillers.” At the same visit Patient 1 also requested a consultation for liposuction treatment of her outer thighs. It is alleged that during the appointment Respondent asked if Patient 1 had breast implants and asked to see them. After looking at Patient to breasts, Respondent proceeded to examine her outer thighs. Respondent then went on to touch Patient l’s inner thighs, abdomen, and lower abdomen, asking about those areas even though the patient did not request treatment of those areas. Respondent then moved Patient to underwear and touched her labia. After Patient 1 moved away from Respondent, Respondent attempted to hug and kiss Patient 1 but she refused. Respondent then apologized and indicated that he would perform the requested outer thigh treatment on Patient 1 at a discounted rate.

4. Patient 1 and Respondent left the exam room. The patient paid for her products but was not charged for the additional fillers she received. The medical records for Patient 1 indicate that the patient would receive a $3,000 discount on the outer thigh treatment.

5. Patient 1 filed a report with the Midland Police Department the next day.

6. Respondent subsequently sent text messages to Patient 1, indicating that there had been a “misunderstanding” and asking the patient to contact him so he could explain.

7. Respondent was arrested on or about June 1, 2017, but bonded out of custody the same day.

8. Staff has received reports detailing similar allegations against Respondent by two other patients.

9. Based on information and belief, Respondent continues to see and treat patients at his practice address in Midland.
