N.J. revokes licenses of 2 doctors accused of sexual misconduct

TRENTON Two doctors accused of inappropriate sexual conduct have agreed to surrender their licenses to practice medicine in New Jersey, Attorney General Christopher Porrino announced Monday.

Bergenfield internist Raja K Jagtiani agreed to forfeit his license when he pleaded guilty last month to criminal sexual contact involving five patients and three female employees, according to Porrino's statement on behalf of the state Board of Medical Examiners.

In a separate action, Jadan H. Abbassi, an anesthesiologist in Clifton, surrendered his license for good to settle allegations he engaged in inappropriate behavior with a patient. Abbassi denies he did anything wrong, Porrino said.

"Doctor-patient trust serves as the bedrock of the medical profession, and sexual exploitation of patients is the gravest imaginable violation of this trust," said Attorney General Porrino. "We will continue to ensure that these licensed predators are weeded out of our medical community."
