Physical Therapist Has License Revoked

FRIDAY, NOV. 24, 1995

A physical therapist who admitted improperly touching some of his female patients has lost his license to practice.

The state Board of Physical Therapy revoked Daniel Ahdut’s license for at least five years and set conditions for his application for reinstatement. Meeting those conditions will not guarantee his license will be restored, said the board’s program manager, Carol Neva.

The board action came seven months after Ahdut pleaded guilty in Pierce County Superior Court to four counts of indecent liberties.

Ahdut’s license had been restricted since early 1994, when several of his patients complained to the board. He was barred from treating women except in the presence of another licensed physical therapist, and also was forbidden to treat patients under 18.

Ahdut was sentenced last months to eight years in prison by Pierce County Superior Court Judge Thomas Swayze Jr., who ordered all but 30 days of the sentence suspended unless there are further complaints.

The judge also ordered Ahdut to undergo sex-deviancy therapy.
