Mel Levine, a 65 year old expert pediatrician who's appeared on Oprah, and whose nonprofit education group has a contract with the city, has been hit with allegations he sexually assaulted a former male patient two decades ago.  The suit alleges that Levine mistreated the young man, John Doe, when he was a 12 year old psych patient at Children's Hospital in Boston from the fall of 1974 until May 1975.  During weekly treatment sessions under the guise of performing repeated, but unnecessary, physical examination, sexually assaulted John, now 46, including numerous acts of genital fondling, masturbation, and other attempted and threatened acts of assault.
