A Willow Street doctor is out of two jobs at school districts in Lancaster and Dauphin counties after he was charged with inappropriately touching a patient at a Quarryville clinic.

William R. Vollmar, 55, was charged with indecent assault on Wednesday.

Lampeter-Strasburg Superintendent Kevin Peart on Friday said Vollmar immediately resigned from his position at the school district.

“We had an independent contractual relationship with Dr. Vollmar to provide school physician services to the District for the 2018-2019 school year,” Peart said in a statement to LNP.

Middletown Area School District Superintendent Lori Suski said the district learned of Vollmar’s charge in a local television news report Wednesday and informed him Thursday that he would be terminated.

Vollmar submitted his resignation letter Thursday, she said.

He had been the school physician at the Dauphin County school district since 2013, according to Suski.

Lampeter-Strasburg wasn’t the only school district in Lancaster County where Vollmar worked; he was approved to provide school physician services at Pequea Valley School District for the 2018-2019 school year, according to school board meeting minutes.

Pequea Valley superintendent Erik Orndorff and spokeswoman Ashley Heagy did not respond to a request by LNP on Vollmar’s employment status Friday afternoon.

Assault charge

Vollmar’s resignations come after a criminal charge stemming from a March 24 incident in which he allegedly touched a male patient’s genitals during a visit to a Quarryville clinic for an ankle injury, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Vollmar was a member of Lancaster County Coroner Stephen Diamantoni’s private practice, Stephen G. Diamantoni, M.D. & Associates.

Diamantoni said Vollmar retired from the practice Tuesday.

Vollmar is set to appear before District Judge Stuart J. Mylin for a preliminary hearing before on May 15.
