    I can't believe other posters haven't read the article. The man ADMITS to doing these things! How is this the news media's fault? And when is it EVER appropriate to show a patient anything sexual in nature on his cell phone. The guy has a problem as did the woman but he was the paid professional.

    Im really disturbed how the media has betrayed a GREAT doctor who's been my family doctor for 9 years and I am a female and NEVER NEVER experienced or felt any sex abuse or lewdness from Dr. Hillum. There should be an investigation on the 60 yr lady too and why she kept returning to him 4 times a week if she felt uncomfortable 3 yrs ago...come on..she cant be that "NAIVE" just cause she thought she was trusting her "Doctor"!!For having some inappropriate videos on your cell phone is now a crime??!! Many people who have cell phones to take videos and pictures have many personal inappropriate pics and videos too..are they committing a crime and can go to jail now?? just wondering ..we hear one 60 yr old patient reported this about Dr. Hillum but the news says he done this to "PATIENTS" so does this mean there are others that claim sex abuse from him too??...Well its sad how the news and media has made this a top story because of one claim...I don't understand how a doctor that has MANY patients and is very highly recommended

    Sounds like the police have found the doctor guilty before he even has a trial. Hope he had a female assistant in the room when he did the exams. You have got to be careful when you are in such situations. You never know how the other person will interpret the situation.

    I won't be surprised if the Doctor is found inncocent and absolved, but publically slandered by an overly hyper-sensative prude.
