Gynecologist Dr. Robert Hadden has been accused of sexually assaulting two of his former patients.
The two female plaintiffs were identified only by their initials — L.K. and A.Y. Their attorney, Anthony Donofrio, said Dr. Robert Hadden of Tenafly, N.J., performed oral sex on both young women, and one reported the incident to police last June.

The alleged abuse took place at Hadden’s office when he was a doctor at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia Hospital.
Police sources confirmed that they had a report about a June 29 sexual assault involving Hadden, and that he was taken into custody the following day, but the record was sealed.
Hadden stopped seeing patients in his Fort Washington Ave. office in September. He did not return calls to his home.
Hospital spokeswoman Myrna Manners said Columbia and the hospital “take allegations of this nature very seriously” but she declined to comment further on pending litigation.
