DEVELOPING: Pediatrician Arrested for Sexual ssault

By Kelley Luckstein

"We were surprised, we were shocked, we were devastated," said Dr. Randall Linton, the CEO and President of the Mayo Clinic Health System, Eau Claire. Words often cannot describe the feeling that goes along with a betrayal of trust. Even more so, when it is someone you hope is looking out for the health and well-being of your own kids. On August 30th, a 16-year-old boy was at Mayo Clinic Health System for an examination. He was with Dr. David Van de Loo, a pediatrician at Mayo Clinic Health System. But during that examination, the boy says he was inappropriately touched by Dr. Van de Loo. Hours after Mayo Clinic Health System learned about it, an investigation was launched. "Shortly thereafter, Dr. Van de Loo was removed from patient care to determine what had happened," said Linton.
