FAYETTEVILLE (WTVD) --A Fayetteville doctor is facing sexual battery charges.
According to arrest warrants, 74-year-old Paul Carter squeezed a female patient's breasts during an appointment late last year.
The incident reportedly happened on November 9, 2015 at a consultation for weight loss surgery.
The patient, who doesn't want to be identified, said it was sexual. "What else can it be? To go into a doctor and he starts fondling you," she said.
"Anytime a man starts groping a woman and it's not wanted it's definitely a problem but for this man to do that in this type of setting," she said. "I feel like it's predatory."
Carter operates the Fayetteville Weight Loss Center, and specializes in bariatric surgery, according to his website.
Court documents state Carter has been charged with misdemeanor sexual battery.
He was arrested by the Fayetteville Police Department on Friday and is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 29th.
