Ex-Iowa doctor convicted of abuse gives up medical license

DES MOINES (AP) -

A former western Iowa physician accused of molesting young patients years ago has surrendered his state medical license.
   The Des Moines Register reports that 82-year-old Wing Tai Fung recently surrendered his medical license, according to documents released Wednesday by the Iowa Board of Medicine.
   The documents say Fung also agreed to pay a $10,000 fine.
   Fung, now of Ontario, Canada, pleaded guilty earlier this year to assault with intent to commit sexual abuse and indecent contact with a child, both misdemeanors.
   A criminal complaint accused Fung of molesting a 10-year-old girl in January 1999 while treating her for a knee sprain at Myrtue Medical Center in Harlan, Iowa. He received a sentence of probation and must register as a sex offender in Iowa.
