Bainbridge Island, WA: Tinker Law Firm, PLLC has announced that the firm’s attorneys are investigating claims against Dr. Darren M. Chotiner. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, the doctor was arrested in connection with alleged sex crimes against two female patients who were seen by him at Peninsula Community Health Services in East Bremerton. According to an article in the Kitsap Sun published on December 3, 2014, Dr. Chotiner has since been charged with second-degree rape and had his license suspended by the Washington Department of Health’s Medical Quality Assurance Commission.
