Baltimore County Police have charged Alberto R. Yataco, MD., of the 1200-block of Culvert Road, 21286 with second-degree rape, sexual abuse of a minor, third-degree sex offense, two counts of fourth-degree sex offenses, and two counts of second-degree assault. Dr. Yataco is the owner and operator of Get Well Immediate Care located in the 7800-block of York Road, 21024. The investigation began when the Baltimore County Police Crimes Against Children Unit received a complaint from a 16-year-old female who felt that she was assaulted by Dr. Yataco. She told police that she was inappropriately touched by the doctor during a routine medical treatment. The victim felt that the doctor’s touching was not a part of her treatment. Detectives then learned of a second victim, a 28-year-old woman, who also claimed that she was touched by Dr. Yataco in a manner that did not appear to be consistent with her medical symptoms. Dr. Yataco is currently being held at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections on denied bail status.
