Dr. George Shapiro, of Scarsdale, accused of sexual harassment by former employee
SCARSDALE - A former employee has filed a federal complaint claiming a Scarsdale doctor sexually harassed her.
The 32-year-old female says she started working for Dr. George Shapiro in 2011. During that time, she claims he bragged to her about performing cosmetic procedures like Botox in exchange for sexual favors from female patients at his other practice in lower Manhattan. She also says he showed her naked pictures of patients on his cellphone and asked her lewd sexual questions.
The former employee was fired in December, and she says it was done for no reason.

This isn't the first time Shapiro, 53, has gotten into trouble with the law. In 2005, he was caught by the FBI for providing sexual enhancement drugs like Viagra to the Gambino crime family. He pleaded guilty in 2006 and was sentenced to a year of probation and a $5,000 fine.
Employees at both his Scarsdale and Manhattan offices refused to comment.
