An Oklahoma doctor is fighting to practice medicine again after several female patients came forward saying he touched them inappropriately during their examinations.

The OBGYN doctor out of Lawton has gone before the board before on similar complaints. But this time he actually broke down in tears before the board, begging for another chance.

Dr. Gregory Keith Morton III testified before the board about the eight weeks of therapy he has undergone. He has had almost a dozen female patients come forward saying he touched them inappropriately during their doctor visits with him.

Morton admitted to the board that he did fondle female patients and admits he did cross boundaries with them in an effort to see what he could get away with.

"I've made mistakes and I'm sorry for them and I'm sorry that. I'm here before you all and I deeply apologize," said Morton III.

Morton III is one of three doctors who was scheduled to go before the board on disciplinary actions.

A Claremore doctor had his license revoked after failing to show up for his hearing on a DUI compliant. The case against An Oklahoma City doctor accused of prescribing pain meds to a patient he was having sex with has been continued until Nov. 8.

In Morton's case the board decided to revoke his medical license. This was the worst case scenario for Morton III, however, he can reapply in a year's time.
