What is Dr. Tyndall accused of?
In late May 2018, the Los Angeles Police Department began investigating complaints from more than 400 women who were previous patients of Dr. George Tyndall. Dr. Tyndall was a gynecologist at USC (University of Southern California) for 26 years. It is believed that Dr. Tyndall examined more than 10,000 students at USC during the period 1990 through 2016.
California Law enforcement stated that the gynecological exams conducted by Dr. Tyndall went beyond normal and acceptable medical practice. The alleged victims’ accounts include instances of Tyndall groping, conducting improper exams, photographing women’s genitalia, and making inappropriate comments. The Los Angeles police are working closely with prosecutors to determine what crimes were committed by Tyndall.

How Do I Know If I’m A Victim?
Dr. George Tyndall practiced gynecology at University of Southern California’s Student Health clinic for nearly 30 years, beginning in 1987.
During his tenure, Dr. Tyndall saw “thousands” of patients, many of whom were USC students. After many years of complaints and allegations against Dr. Tyndall from patients, colleagues and staff members, USC finally suspended Tyndall in 2016. He formally resigned his post in June 2017. The University finally reported the accusations against Dr. Tyndall to the California Medical Board in a complaint in March 2018.
A recent article from the LA Times, May 2018, gives some testimonies from women who have come forward.
“Some of the most serious allegations against Tyndall concern his use of fingers at the start of pelvic exams. Witnesses told The Times the physician routinely inserted one finger and then a second in patients after voicing concern that the speculum might not fit. While he spoke, they said, he moved his fingers in and out and made remarks on the tightness of their vaginal muscles: My, what a tight muscle you have. You must be a runner.”
“An attorney who attended USC for her undergraduate and law degrees from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s said she saw Tyndall about three times a year while she studied there. She spoke on the condition of anonymity and said the physician, her first regular gynecologist, often made lewd remarks. During frequent breast exams, he commented on the attractiveness of her slender body, squeezed her nipples and compared her favorably to his wife, who was also Asian. “He’d tell me, ‘You have nice full breasts,’ she recounted. “He’d say, ‘Not every Asian has nice big breasts.'”
