EVERETT — Detectives believe an acupuncturist accused of sexually abusing patients at his Everett-area practice may have additional victims who have not yet come forward.
Dr. Kuo Ching “K.C” Yee, 79, of Mercer Island, has a business in the 100 block of 130th Street SE, south of Everett.
Yee is accused of making unwanted sexual contact with female patients at the business.
He was arrested in April for investigation of three counts of indecent liberties.
Yee also has a history of health-department violations related to sexual misconduct.
As part of state health department investigations, Yee in 1992 was ordered to undergo a sexual deviancy evaluation and agreed to only treat female patients in the presence of a woman who could monitor his conduct. He allegedly had been violating the conditions of those state orders.
In the earlier cases, Yee was accused of inappropriately touching patients and asking them sexual questions.
He reportedly told a victim in the more recent case that the sexual activity was part of her treatment. The state Department of Health also is involved in that investigation, court records show.
The case has been charged in Snohomish County Superior Court, and Yee was sent a summons for a hearing last week.
Anyone who believes they or someone else may have been victimized should call the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office at 425-388-3845. Tips can be anonymous.
