Dr. Henry Echiverri was arrested on November 29, 2018 after one of his patients submitted a sexual assault complaint to the authorities. In her report, the woman accused the neurologist of touching her bare skin below the waistline during an examination. She says the doctor "hugged and kissed" her at the end of the appointment.
At the time of the alleged assault, Dr. Echiverri practiced medicine out of the Edward Neurosciences Institute in Warrenville and Yorkville, as well as Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital. He also practices at Edward-Elmhurst Hospital. Despite the allegations against him, Edward-Elmhurst Hospital has chosen to allow Dr. Echiverri to continue practicing medicine out of their facility. The hospital says there have been no other reports of misconduct against the neurologist during his 28-year tenure at the center. He has been removed from the website for Northwestern Medicine.
