Benton County Chiropractor's License Suspended

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- A Richland chiropractor's license has been suspended for three years because of sexual misconduct charges.

The Chiropractic Quality Assurance Commission and the Department of Health suspended Russell Tagg's license immediately in March 2012 based on charges that he inappropriately touched his patient during treatment sessions and kissed her on the cheek at the end of several sessions.

The three-year suspension completes the legal process.

Tagg must meet requirements designed to protect the public and ensure patient safety before he can get his license reinstated.
