Alleged Sexual Assault by Dr. Roger Hardy
Dr. Roger Ian Hardy, the longtime medical director of the Fertility Centers of New England, has had his medical licenses suspended in multiple states following allegations that he inappropriately touched and sexually molested female patients while they were sedated.
According to records, Dr. Hardy’s alleged misconduct was first reported by a patient in 2004, and over the years, employees of the fertility clinic said they witnessed at least three other incidents.
Despite the complaints, however, Dr. Hardy continued to practice at the Fertility Centers of New England’s nine offices in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine until January 21, 2014 amid an investigation sparked by new allegations made to the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine.
Multiple States Investigating Dr. Hardy’s Sexual Assault Allegations
Following Dr. Hardy’s resignation of his Massachusetts’ medical license in January 2014 amid an investigation by that state’s Board of Registration in Medicine into allegations he molested sedated patients, his license to practice was also suspended by state boards in Maine and New Hampshire.
