CHARLOTTE, NC — Dr. Jonathan Christenbury, a well-known Charlotte eye doctor, voluntarily surrendered his medical license Wednesday after several allegations of sexual harassment.
Today, Christenbury, owner of the Christenbury Eye Center, surrendered his medical license to the North Carolina Medical Board.
Christenbury was sued in July by two former female employees for sexual harassment, assault, and wrongful termination. The lawsuit also said that he regularly hired women based on their appearance.
One of the women suing, a former Hornets cheerleader, says Christenbury offered her $5000 for sex, and stalked her.
The medical board had previously scheduled a hearing on the allegations for December 14th.
