A prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, who has practiced for over 50 years, has been charged with sexually assaulting two of his female patients. 

At his arraignment Tuesday, Dr. Frederic Corbin, 77, of Villa Park, pleaded not guilty to one count of sexual battery by fraud, one count of sexual exploitation by a physician, two counts of sexual battery and two counts of battery. 

Corbin, who has offices in Brea, Beverly Hills and Murrieta, is accused of sexually molesting one of his patients while he prepped her surgery on September 17, 2020, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. 

The plastic surgeon is accused of molesting another patient on March 14, when she came into his Brea office for an examination post-surgery treatment. 

‘Patients entrust their very lives to the doctors who treat them,’ said Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer. ‘No one seeking medical treatment should have to worry about being sexually assaulted while under a doctor’s care. These women were in very vulnerable situations and their doctor capitalized on those vulnerabilities for his own sexual gratification.’

In an email statement to DailyMail.com, Corbin’s attorney, Courtney Pilchman, said her client ‘vehemently and categorically denies these outrageous and false allegations.’ 

‘He has practiced for over 50 years, without any complaint by a female patient regarding inappropriate behavior,’ Pilchman said. ‘There are thousands of patients, colleagues and friends who support Dr. Corbin and know these allegations are untrue. This case is about two disgruntled patients who made allegations that we will prove are false.’

Corbin turned himself into authorities on Tuesday and faces a maximum sentence of five years in state prison, according to a police report from the Brea Police Department.    

Despite maintaining his innocence, public records indicate Corbin has received multiple healthcare sanctions throughout his extensive career. 

A sanction dating back to February 20, 2009 indicates Corbin received complaints over ‘quality of care issues,’ which include ‘dishonorable, unethical, and unprofessional conduct.’
