A Southern California doctor is out of a job for now after the state Medical Board recently revoked his license.

What did he do, allegedly? Well, let's just say five of his patients claim he was playing doctor -- and they didn't want to play. Some alleged he fondled their private parts during regular checkups. In one case a woman said the doc touched her nipples as her mother waited in the same room. Apparently not clear on what, exactly, was happening, the mom said, "You're hurting her."

In fact David Hung Do of Anaheim Hills has been charged with sexually assaulting victims at Kaiser Permanente locations throughout Southern California, according to board documents.

The assaults allegedly took place between 2006 and 2008.

In his defense before the board, the 40-year-old from Saigon said his lack of English skills might have complicated patient relationships and led to misunderstandings.

He even told the board he completed his residency at Kaiser despite the hardship of having a sexual misconduct claim over his head -- a claim that was not upheld.

Hmm. Here are some of the details:
