TOPEKA, KS -- The Kansas Board of Healing Arts has suspended the medical license of an Oklahoma doctor for alleged sexual misconduct.

Hampton Anderson III of McAlester was temporarily suspended from practicing medicine during a meeting Friday.

In a news release, the board said Dr. Anderson is not to treat patients, prescribe medication or otherwise practice medicine in Kansas.

In its emergency order issued on Friday, the board cited allegations of three separate acts of sexual misconduct, including one which was not consensual that allegedly took place at the Choctaw Tribal Nation Clinic in Idabel.

The Choctaw Nation spokesperson says Dr. Hampton Anderson III no longer practices at their facilities.

Also cited was an allegation of sexual misconduct at a Kansas medical facility.

Read the emergency order.

The emergency suspension will remain in place until the Kansas board holds a hearing on August 27th at 9 a.m. in Topeka, Kansas to determine if the suspension should continue.

The board says Anderson was licensed in April 1992 to practice osteopathic medicine.

The license, which is an unrestricted federally active Kansas license, allows him to practice medicine anywhere in the country.
