Cops: Man Poses as Doctor at Clinic — Douglasville Patch

A Douglasville man allegedly posed as a doctor at his Smyrna clinic and sexually battered a woman who went to the clinic last month for a required immigration physical, according to a Cobb County criminal warrant.

Patrick Ikponmwosu Ogbebor was arrested Friday on charges of aggravated sexual battery, sexual battery and practicing medicine without a license.

According to the warrant, a woman went to the Mosthouse Lab Test & Healthcare Clinic on Feb. 21 to have an immigration physical, but Ogbebor "went far and beyond the standard set up by USCIS, Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record" when he administered a mammogram and a pelvic exam.
