Los Angeles Gynecologist Surrenders his License to the Medical Board of California
Published: Monday, September 9, 2019
(Sacramento, California) – George R. Tyndall, a gynecologist accused of sexual misconduct, has surrendered his license to practice medicine to the Medical Board of California (Board). The surrender of the license became effective on September 5, 2019, and comes after the filing of an accusation charging him with sexual misconduct involving five patients.
“The incidents outlined in the Board’s accusation against George Tyndall are egregious violations,” said Kimberly Kirchmeyer, the Board’s executive director. “On behalf of California consumers, the Board achieved the highest level of patient protection with the surrender of Tyndall’s license.”
After learning about the reports of the sexual misconduct, the Board petitioned for and obtained an interim suspension order against Tyndall, preventing him from practicing medicine until the accusation filed against his license reached conclusion.
The Board’s accusation against Tyndall details inappropriate sexual contact with five patients he treated during his time as a gynecologist at a college student health center.
