Police: Doctor admitted rape
BY KIMBALL PERRY | [email protected]

The doctor arrested Wednesday and charged with raping a patient at Mercy Hospital Anderson has been ordered to stay away from at least three area hospitals.

Mercy Anderson, Good Samaritan and Bethesda North hospitals suspended the medical privileges of Samuel Elmer Perler-Tomboly, after his arrest at the Anderson Township substation of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

"Obviously, it's a serious allegation," Dr. Robert Hiltz, Anderson Mercy's chief of staff, said today.

Tomboly was charged with rape stemming from an Oct. 9 incident.

A female patient - who is personal friends with the doctor and his wife - reported that she was under medication prescribed by Tomboly when he, knowing she couldn't physically care for herself, fondled her breasts, buttocks and genitals.

Tomboly, a 1988 graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, was an emergency room physician. He worked for Quality Emergency Specialists Inc., a group of doctors Mercy Anderson contracts with to provide emergency room care.

E-mails were sent today to doctors at Quality Emergency Specialists Inc. requesting comment, but they did not respond.

Tomboly, 45, and a father of four, has had no complaints filed against him with the medical boards in Ohio or Arizona, where he practiced for five years before returning to Cincinnati.

Tomboly's attorney denied the allegation in court Thursday, but police say the doctor didn't.

"There are admissions that are tape-recorded," sheriff's Detective Brian Pitchford said Thursday in court.

The patient told police she was impaired by the drugs Tomboly prescribed for her, and that impaired her ability to resist the alleged assault.

Shortly after the doctor's bond was set at $50,000, his wife, Vera Lynn Poole, posted it.

But that didn't get him released.

That's because the judge also ordered that the victim, who lives within two miles of the doctor's Anderson Township residence, and the doctor be fitted with a monitors to alert authorities if he approaches her.

It takes up to 48 hours for all of the equipment to be set up and for the monitors to be placed on the victim and the accused. The doctor won't be released from jail until that is done.

Pitchford also asked that the doctor surrender his passport, which the judge ordered.

The rape charge against the doctor carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years.
