Officials were initially alerted in December 2019 to the report of a female patient who visited Lohstreter after becoming ill due to a change in medication. During her appointment and once a female nurse left the room, Lohstreter reportedly examined parts of her body unrelated to her illness. Through continued investigation, detectives were alerted to six additional female patients who reported similar misconduct ranging from fondling to sexual battery. Detectives recommended criminal charges to the State Attorney’s Office who reviewed the allegations and issued warrants for Lohstreter’s arrest. He was taken into custody Tuesday.

The Florida Department of Health suspended Lohstreter’s medical license March 9 and he is no longer employed at his former practice. Anyone with additional information or concerns related to Lohstreter is urged to contact our Criminal Investigations Section at 941.861.4900.
