A Woodbridge physician was charged with sexually assaulting three patients in his office last year, according to Prince William County police.

Nizar Mohamed Hussain, 44, of the 8900 block of Brook Road in McLean, has been charged with one count of sexual battery and two counts of assault and battery.

The charges stem from three separate incidents in March, September and December last year in which he touched three women while they were in his care.

He allegedly sexually assaulted a 52-year-old woman who lives in Stafford in September. In the December and March incidents, he allegedly tried to kiss the two other women, both of whom are 37, without their consent.

In December, Hussain was charged with sexual battery and assault and battery, also from incidents involving patients, police said.

All of the incidents happened in his office at 2000 Opitz Boulevard. He was released without bond and has a court date scheduled for April 7.

I could imagine the question coming out.

"Your cholesterol is high and we will need to work on this. My testosterone is high and I will need to work on that. May I have permission to sexually assault you?"

What bugs me about this is that the people that we depend on most and the people that are there to guide us through some of the most complicated portions of our lives, these same people that judge us from a political, educational, religious, legal and medical standpoints are the most protected when it comes to their qualifications, peer review, actions of morality, legality, ethics and various types of customer/client/parishioner service.

We have to fight very hard to gain any information about them pertaining to their performance within what is their designated occupation.

Why?

Often these people have access to the smallest artifacts of information in our lives and if we try, for the most part, to gain information pertaining to their ethics, criminal behavior, qualifications or even other complaints made by others pertaining to their actions within their skill set and occupation and we might as well be trying to penetrate a Cold War missile silo.

Why has our government allowed this to continue?

There was a time that the government was ran by the people. Now it is the other way around. Lobbyists, special interest groups back room deals is what the government is today.

I wonder how many times there has been complaints against this doctor before the protective wall started crumbling and he was finally charged for his actions?

We need to gain access to our country again and it seems to me that we are still in the same mode that we have been in for years despite the promise of "Hope" and "Change".

Ronald Reagan was right in so many ways. Government is not the solution, it is the problem.

My heart goes out to the ladies for what they have had to endure and what they will continue to endure thorough out this criminal prosecution. The protective walls will remain intact.
