A doctor of chiropractic medicine is accused of sexually abusing a patient during treatment.

Adam Lopez, 58, of Astoria, was arrested Monday on nine counts of third-degree sex abuse. He was lodged in the Clatsop County Jail and is awaiting arraignment.

Deputies confirmed Lopez is associated with the North Coast Chiropractic Center in Warrenton.

Deputies said a 26-year-old woman reported the alleged abuse. She said Lopez intentionally touched sexually intimate parts of her body and subjected her to touching his groin.

Lopez is also accused of attempting to establish a relationship with the patient outside a professional setting, according to investigators.

The woman went to Lopez for treatment twice, investigators said. She wasn't sure if the first instance was abuse, deputies said, but reported it to the Clatsop County Sherriff's Office after her second visit.

Deputies are asking anyone who believes Lopez inappropriately touched them during chiropractic treatment to call Senior Deputy Sheriff Tim Guest at 503-325-8635.
