Psychiatrist Brian Cassmassi, Guilty of Indecent Exposure, May Lose License

On March 7, 2018, the Medical Board of California issued an Accusation against Los Angeles psychiatrist Brian J. Cassmassi. The Accusation seeks to revoke or suspend Cassmassi’s license due to a criminal conviction substantially related to the practice of psychiatry.

The document states that on or about June 29, 2016, a criminal complaint was filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court which charged Cassmassi with one count of indecent exposure. According to the Accusation, in October 2015, Cassmassi provided psychotherapy and medication management to a male patient, T.C., to whom he “showed gay pornography on his laptop computer, exposed his penis and began masturbating himself in front of the patient.”

In an interview with the Medical Board, Cassmassi admitted he’d done these things.
