TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey doctor whose license was revoked after a second sexual misconduct case has lost his bid for reinstatement.

The State Board of Medical Examiners announced Wednesday that it had rejected an appeal brought by Leonard Joachim, who had an office in Wayne. The panel had revoked the 62-year-old doctor’s license in May 2015, citing several accusations that he inappropriately touched female patients.

As part of his appeal, Joachim had said he would only see male patients with a chaperone present.

The board had previously required chaperones for Joachim when he treated female patients. That came after an allegation of unwanted sexual contact with a female patient.

A telephone number for Joachim could not be located Wednesday.
