The Pennsylvania Department of Health on Monday temporarily suspended the medical license of a Willow Street doctor charged last week with indecent assault of a patient.
The Lancaster County district attorney’s office also asked the public to notify their local police departments with information regarding William R. Vollmar.
On Wednesday, Vollmar, 55, was charged with touching a patient’s genitals during an after-hours, soft-tissue massage for a sports-related injury at a Quarryville clinic on May 23, according to state police.
He also was contracted for medical work at several schools in the county.
Officials have not filed any other charges against Vollmar, but continue to investigate, the district attorney’s office said.
Vollmar must appear before the health department’s State Board of Medicine in 30 days. The board will determine if there is evidence to support the temporary license suspension. He also could face further discipline.
His medical license was granted in August 1991.
Vollmar retired from Stephen G. Diamantoni, M.D. & Associates on April 9, the day before he was charged. The private practice is owned by Lancaster County Coroner Dr. Stephen Diamantoni.
The alleged incident happened at the practice on Commerce Drive in Quarryville.
The state health department said it does not have records of where Vollmar worked.
Physicians do not need a separate medical license to work in schools, according to department of health spokeswoman Kaitlin Murphy.
LNP previously reported Vollmar was approved as a school physician for the 2018-19 school year at Lampeter-Strasburg and Pequea Valley school districts.
Lampeter-Strasburg Superintendent Kevin Peart on Friday said Vollmar immediately resigned from his position at the school district.
Pequea Valley did not respond to requests for comment.
Lancaster Country Day School spokeswoman Dulcey Antonucci said Vollmar provided “medical advising services” at the school.
Vollmar worked directly with the school’s nurse and athletic trainer but did not see students, she said Monday. The school is securing a relationship with a new medical practice to replace Vollmar and will notify families when the new contract is signed, she added.
Vollmar also worked as a subcontractor through medical providers contracted by Solanco School District, the district said in a statement on their website Friday. The medical care included services as a team doctor and for school physicals, the district said.
