VA physician assistant Mark Wisner, charged with sodomy, solicitation, sexual battery and aggravated sexual battery.

Brown & Curry represents more than 30 veterans now bringing claims against the VA through the Federal Tort Claims Act.  These claims focus on the unnecessary medical procedures Wisner performed as well as the VA's failure to appropriately supervise Mr. Wisner.

Former VA physician assistant Mark Wisner goes to trial at the end of October for sexual batteries stemming from his exams of veterans at the Leavenworth VA Medical Center.

U.S. Senator Jerry Moran grilled VA Secretary Robert McDonald at a Capitol Hill hearing this week on how the VA could have hired Mr. Wisner, given his criminal record.

Secretary McDonald stated that he had different information than what Sen. Moran had, and maintained that the VA hiring procedure was satisfactory. Sen. Moran stated that his facts were accurate and came from the Inspector General's office. Sen. Moran urged the Secretary to learn from the experience of the failed hiring practices and to respond to his written request for information.
