NLV doctor convicted of groping patients could return to practicing medicine Monday

A North Las Vegas doctor who inappropriately touched at least seven patients could be back at work in a matter of days.

Last July, Jorge Burgos was sentenced to seven days in jail, a day for each victim he groped, as well as three years probation. He was accused of groping his patients.

In December 2017, his medical license was also suspended for four months. But that ends soon, and he could begin seeing patients again as early as Monday.

Lieutenant Shubert says Burgos has been in compliance since starting probation last July.
